Our 2000 North Carolina Annual Conference Emphasis 


The Holy Spirit is moving in the North Carolina Annual Conference! 

In the past year, we have been challenged in unexpected ways as wind 
and flood water devastated our annual conference. The damage was 
unprecedented. Hearts were broken, and lives were shattered. The Spirit, 
however, moved across the damp darkness, bringing forth miraculous fruit: 
love, kindness, generosity, gentleness. 

We have worked together, offering comfort and help. We have rejoiced 
as gifts and volunteers came from across the country, refreshing our sense 
of the United Methodist connection. We have experienced the presence 
and movement of the Holy Spirit. 

We await the Holy Spirit as we gather together in one place for Annual 
Conference. We will break bread together and pray. We will learn, discern, 
and make decisions together. We will set apart persons for particular 
ministries. We will worship and celebrate, seeking the unity that the Holy 
Spirit gives. 

We anticipate the Holy Spirit with us, ever-fresh. At the end of this 
Annual Conference Session, may we depart with glad and generous hearts 
to celebrate Pentecost and fullness of God's gifts in every local United 
Methodist Church.

Conference Proceedings 


Conference Program 1 12 

113 Conference Program 



The Holy Spirit is moving in the North Carolina Annual Conference! 

in the past year, we have been challenged in unexpected ways as wind and flood water 
devastated our annual conference. The damage was unprecedented. Hearts were broken, 
and lives were shattered. 

The Spirit, however, moved across the damp darkness, bringing forth miraculous fruit: 
love, kindness, generosity, gentleness. 

We have worked together, offering comfort and help. We have rejoiced as gifts and 
volunteers came from across the country, refreshing our sense of the United Methodist 
connection. We have experienced the presence and movement of the Holy Spirit. 

We await the Holy Spirit as we gather together in one place for Annual Conference. 
We will break bread together and pray. We will learn, discern, and make decisions together. 
We will set apart persons for particular ministries. We will worship and celebrate, seeking 
the unity that the Holy Spirit gives. 

We anticipate the Holy Spirit with us, ever-fresh. At the end of this Annual Conference 
Session, may we depart with glad and generous hearts to celebrate Pentecost and fullness 
of God's gifts in every local United Methodist Church.

Executive Session as set forth in The Book of Discipline. Bishop Edwards spoke briefly to

another in both our private and public life, and about the call to ministry. He reflected upon 
the ever increasing diversity of this Annual Conference; commented about the flood and 
blizzard that occurred since the last Annual Conference; and gave words of gratitude to all 
pastors who endured the difficulties of the floods and blizzards that destroyed many areas 
of the Annual Conference. Bishop Edwards conveyed his awareness of the leadership and 
ministry of those pastors affected in these areas. 

Tfie Bishop announced that there will be a newly created office of Pastoral Care, staffed 
by a person who will address counseling issues among our clergy families. Due to the 
challenges and complaints made to the Bishop, a part-time sexual ethics coordinator has

solely to addressing these issues. The purpose is to help clergy implement and conform to 
the new sexual ethics guidelines adopted oy the Annual Conference 1605.6.

their respective districts. The Burlington and Fayetteville Districts have a complaint filed 
against one clergy person in each district, respectively. The Raleigh District has complaints 
filed against two clergy. The remaining nine district superintendents reported nothing against

The Conference Staff Relations Committee is composed of nine persons, including 
two District Superintendents. Ex-officio members, without vote, are: Executive Director of 
Conference Council on Ministries, Administrative Assistant to the Bishop, Conference 
Treasurer/Business Manager, Conference Secretary, and United Methodist Foundation 
Executive Director. 

The Committee confers and counsels with the CCOM staff to make effective ministry 
possible. It receives reports concerning the work of the CCOM staff and evaluates their 
effectiveness. It makes recommendations to the Staff in consultation with the Executive 
Director. It makes nominations for staff positions to the CCOM annually. It makes 
recommendations annually to the Budget Committee concerning salaries. It considers 
other items of staff support and concerns, such as vacation, sick leave, housing continuing 
education and other compensations. 

The Committee wishes to express their thanks and appreciation to the Executive 
Director of CCOM, the Rev. Hope Morgan Ward, and the Associate Directors of CCOM 
who give outstanding leadership. The goal of CCOM and its staff is to make disciples for 
Jesus Christ by equipping its local churches for ministry and by providing a connection for 
ministry beyond the local church, all to the glory of God. 

The Conference Staff Relations Committee met twice since Annual Conference of 
1999, including an April annual luncheon with all conference related personnel in the 
United Methodist Building. In this time of fellowship and fun, thanks and appreciation is 
expressed to the entire staff at the Methodist Building. 

The Task Force on Conference Structure has worked to prepare a proposal for 
structure for our Conference. If approved by Annual Conference in 2000, the Conference 
Staff Relations Committee will be a central group for providing insight and counsel. This 
Committee will take its current objectives/functions and blend them into the new structure. 

The evaluation process for the work and ministry of the CCOM staff has taken place. 
At that time, all staff expressed a desire to remain on the CCOM staff for another year. 
Their ministries on the staff continue to be rewarding, stimulating and challenging, and 
they continue to sense God's calling as part of the CCOM Staff. Our Committee 
recommended that Bishop Edwards reappoint the Reverend Jimmy Cummings, the 
Reverend Bruce Stanley, and the Reverend Carol Dell Hayes as Associate Directors, that 
Sue Ellen Nicholson received a service appointment as Diaconal Minister as Associate 
Director, and that Bill Norton, a lay person, continue to be employed as an Associate 

Legislation 184 

Director. Since that time Bruce Stanley has discerned calling to another field of service. 
We send him forth, with thanks for work well and faithfully done. 

Having completed a "Handbook of Personnel Policies" for both the Administrative 
Assistants, the CCOM Director and Associate Directors, we are now looking into a 
Disability Leave Policy. In view of some of the recent disability situations concerning the 
Staff, our Committee sees the need for a clear policy on disability. 

One of the responsibilities of our Committee is to present recommendations to the 
CCOM for salaries for the Associate Directors for the coming year. Our recommendation 
was for a 6% increase in salary for all Associate Directors. This projection for 2000 takes 
into account the average salary increase for clergy serving in the Annual Conference over 
the past three years. This recommendation was approved by CCOM at their November 

All of the staff at the Methodist Building have been involved in the recovery operation 
of Hurricane Floyd in Eastern NC. They participated in a workday last Fall in the area. Also, 
the staff has graciously yielded the West Wing Conference Room at the Building to be 
used by the Disaster Preparedness Relief Office. 

Once again, we express our thanks and appreciation to the Administrative Assistants, 
the Executive Director, the Associate Directors and all the United Methodist Building Staff 
for another year of outstanding support to the ministry and mission of the North Carolina 

Jane H. Johnson, Chairperson 


The Task Force on Conference Structure was formed by the action of the 1997 North 
Carolina Annual Conference in response to the 1996 General Conference freedoms given 
for structure and in an effort to seek the highest level of faithfulness and effectiveness in our 
conference structure. The Task Force has examined our current conference structure, has 
been in dialogue with the Connectional Process Team of the General Church and with 
other annual conferences in their restructuring processes, has been engaged in a process 
of discernment, and will share at Annual Conference a proposed new structure for our 
Annual Conference. 

The Task Force, in working together and in proposing structural change, voices hopes 
for: 1) the participation of all voices in the conference, including lay and clery voices, 
theologically diverse voices, cultural and racial diversities, and churches of all sizes, 2) the 
creation of a leadership circle where all ministry groups and all consitutencies of the Annual 
Conference come together for conferencing, visioning, and implementing ministry, 3) the 
strengthening of local congreqations and faith communities in making disciples, 4) the 
development of a stronger and more meaningful connection, 5) an interactive structure in 
which the global and local natures of the church speak and listen to one another. 

The Task Force seeks the input of all United Methodists in the North Carolina 
Conference as we discern the ways God is calling us into the future. An overview of the new 
structure will be presented to the Annual Conference, and a process of dialogue will begin 
and continue until the 2000 Annual Conference. There will be dialogue in district settings 
in fall, 1999, in response to the structural proposal. The Task Force will continue to refine 
the plan with final presentation to the Annual Conference in June, 2000. The plan, if 
adopted by the Annual Conference, would go into effect in July, 2001. 

The Task Force on Conference Structure welcomes your input at any stage of this 
dialogue process. Written feedback can be mailed to Robby Lowry, 2056 NC Highway 710 
South, Rowland, NC 28383. The members of the Task Force on Conference Structure are 
Gloria McAuley, Anna Workman, Tom Holtsclaw, George Johnson, Ed Morrison, Susan 
Pate-Greenwood, Luis Reinoso, Kong Namkung, Kim Lamb, Bob Frazier, Jeanne Rouse, 
Regina Henderson, Jimmy Sutton, Sam Wynn, Allen Norris, Beverly Small, Ron Gooding, 
Albert Shuler, Belton Joyner, Hope Ward, and Robby Lowry. 

Organizational Structure for the North Carolina Annual Conference 

The purpose of the North Carolina Annual Conference structure, staff, and program 
is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by strengthening local congregations to be strategic 
centers for ministry and mission, and to provide a connection for ministry. 

185 Legislation 

The North Carolina Annual Conference will organize its nninistry, using this 

Structure Monitoring Group 

A group will be established for the purpose of evaluating the conference structure for 
effectiveness. It will also ensure that the Conference Rules are accurate in the description 
of the structure of the Annual Conference, making proposals for change as structure 
evolves. This group will be elected by the Annual Conference and made up of seven 
people, four of whom are not serving within the Conference Structure. 
North Carolina Conference Connectional Table 

The Connectional Table will be the link between the circles of ministry. Its purpose 
is to provide a place for joint plannina and problem-solving, to discern the vision for 
mission and ministry for the North Carolina Conference, and to strengthen the connection 
between the Annual Conference and the local church. The Connectional Table is the link 
to the Annual Conference Session. The Annual Conference Session will have the 
responsibility of hearing the Connectional Table's vision, and either affirming that vision 
or setting forward an alternate proposal. 

Membership : Meeting on a quarterly basis, the Connectional Table will be made up 
of 31 people - 3 representatives from each circle of ministry, 12 at-large members selected 
by the Conference Committee on Nominations, the Bishop, 2 District Superintendents, 
and the Director of Connectional Ministries. At-large members will ensure connecting links 
between districts and local churches and the Connectional Table. Membership in the 
Connectional Table will be for four-year terms, with one quarter of the table changing each 
year. The Conference Committee on Nominations with meet once each year to nominate 
representatives to the Conference Connectional Table and to the five circles of ministry. 
Openings occurring during the year due to moves, resignations and other reasons will be 
filled by the Bishop and Cabinet. The Committee on Nominations will be made up of one 
representative of the monitoring and accountability group, the twelve District Superinten- 
dents, twelve others to be nominated by the bishop (at least 75% of whom should be laity), 
and the Bishop, who will serve as convener. 
Five Circles of Ministry 

The agencies, boards and commissions defined by the Book of Discipline will 
organize themselves according to the requirements outlined in the current Book of 
Discipline and will connect through the circles of ministry. Ministry areas not prescribed 
by the Book of Discipline will be organized by the circles of ministry, using task forces or 
standing groups to plan and implement ministry and mission. Circles of ministry will 
organize, plan, lead, and evaluate, as they live out the vision as embraced by the 
Conference. Circles of ministry are accountable to the Connectional Table for holding up 
and living out the vision affirmed by the Annual Conference, and for faithfully presenting 
ministry needs to the Connectional Table. Each circle of ministry will organize itself and 
will determine its schedule of meetings, meeting at least once a year. 

Legislation 186 

Membership in the five circles of ministry will be for one four-year term with the option 
to extend for an additional four-year term, using staggered classes to provide continuity 
within the ministry area. 
Spiritual Formation and Leadership Development 

This circle of ministry will encompass the work of all Christians (lay and ordained), 
taking care to carry forward the work of Christian nurture and spiritual formation, including 
the work of The (Jnited Methodist Youth. 
Mission Development 

This circle of ministry will carry forward the work of witness, outreach/missions, and 
social justice, including the work of the Gnited Methodist Women and United Methodist 

This circle of ministry will encompass the work of the bishop and cabinet, annual 
conference program, ecumenism. Christian unity, congregational development, 
monitoring and accountability, and nominations. 
Resource Ministries 

This circle of ministry will include the work of the treasurer's office, insurance, 
disability, trustees, pensions, equitable compensation, finance and administration. 

This circle of ministry will carry forward the work of archives and history, information 
systems, publications, electronic reporting, and the linking of the local church, the annual 
conference, and the world.

The Joint Committee on Disability acts as the advocate for those pastors in the North 
Carolina Conference who are forced by physical or emotional disability to seek temporary 
or permanent relief from their appointment. The committee is given the responsibility to 
study the problems of disability within the Conference, to provide a continuing personal 
ministry to those who are disabled, and to make recommendations to the appropriate 
agencies of the Conference for each pastor seeking Disability Leave, including the source 
of their disability income. 

Persons interested in discovering more about the process of being granted Disability 
Leave can contact a district superintendent or the chair of the Joint Committee Disability. 

The following recommendations are presented to the 2000 session of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference: 

1 . The Joint Committee on Disability, through the Office of Ministerial Relations, will 
make available upon reauest the necessary forms for any pastor to make application 
for Disability Leave. In all cases the applications must be completed by the pastor, the 
physician, chair of Joint Committee on Disability, Conference benefits officer, and the 
district superintendent before the request for Disability Leave can be acted upon. 
Whenever possible disability requests are to be submitted ninety (90) days prior to 
Annual Conference except in life-threatening situations after that date, or when the 
disabling condition occurs after that date. Requests presented before May 15 will be 
included in the Committee's report to the Annual Conference. 

2. Definition of Disability: For the first 24 months, an active participant will be considered 
disabled for the purposes of the Comprehensive Protection Plan and the Basic 
Protection Plan as of the date the Administrator determines on the basis of medical 
evidence that such active participant was unable to perform the usual and customary 
duties of his/her employment by reason of bodily injury, disease, or mental or 
emotional disease or disorder that will presumably last for at least six continuous 
months, exclusive of any disability resulting from service in the armed forces of any 
country, warfare, intentionally self-inflicted injury, or participation in any criminal or 
unlawful act. 

3. A pastor seeking to be on disability secures a disability claim kit from the Office of 
Ministerial Relations. The applicant completes Form A, has his or her physician 
complete Form B, completes the applicant's portion of Form C, and submit all these 
forms to the Office of Ministerial Relations tor completion. Disability Management 
Alternatives reviews the claim and recommends a determination to the GeneralBoard 
of Pension and Health Benefits who retains the authority to approve or deny a claim. 

4. We recommend that pastors who may not be eligible for benefits paid by the 
Comprehensive Protection Plan may be placed on Disability Leave with benefits paid 
through the Joint Committee on Disability with its approval. 

5. The Ministerial Pension Plan, Comprehensive Protection Plan, Hospital Insurance, and 
Life Insurance shall be paid by the Joint Committee on Disability both for those 
approved by the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits and those approved 
by the Joint Committee on Disability. 

6. Pastors on Disability Leave are reminded to investigate the penalties by the Social 
Security Administration if they do not elect to come under Medicare at age 65. 

7. We recommend that a lump sum grant of $3,500 be made at the beginning of 
Disability Leave. This grant will be available only one time in a pastor's years of service. 

Legislation lOO 

8. The Joint Committee on Disability will review the progress of each pastor on Disability 
Leave at least annually. This review will include both recommendations from the 
pastor's physician and district superintendent as well as opportunities for continuing 
fellowship with the pastor to develop further possibilities of assistance in his/her 
disabled circumstances. 

9. We recommend the following pastors to be continued on Disability Leave. 

A. Wilson E. Barber, P O Box 4931, Emerald Isle 28594 (919/354-5635)

12. We recommend that pastors and congregations in the communities in which our 
disabled pastors reside seek to establish a supportive relationship with those on 
Disability Leave to maintain good fellowship and provide for pastoral opportunities. 

Charles L. Pollock, Chairperson 


The Book of Discipline mandates that "there shall be in each annual conference 
a Commission on Equitable Compensation" (11622. 1), whose purpose is "to support full-time 
clergy serving as pastors in the charges of the annual conference..." (11622.2). Three broad 
areas of responsibility are outlined in 11622.2, which are (a.) recommending conference 
standards for clergy support; (b.) administering funds to be used in base compensation 
supplementation; and (c.) providing counsel and advisory material on clergy support to 
district superintendents and committees on pastor-parish relations. 

God calls persons to ministry to go into all the world, preaching, teaching, and 
baptizing (Matthew 28.19), for without them the world would not have heard Christ 
preached (Romans 10:14). These are called to be stewards of the mysteries of God (1 
Corinthians 4.1). The church sets some persons apart for the role of clergy and ordains 
these persons to the work of pastoral ministry to the servants of God. 

Pastors answer affirmatively the historic question of John Wesley, (1321) "Are you 
determined to employ all your time in the work of God?" For such a called, set apart, and 
committed clergy, the church assumes an obligation to plan adequate support (1617). The 
Book of Discipline is clear that "the primary responsibility for payment of^ pastoral salaries 
remains with individual pastoral charges" (11622.4; see also 1249.12). Charges carry a 
responsibility for pastoral salaries as one expression of missional/ministry presence in the 
community. We recognize that such a missional presence also includes faithful payment of 
apportionments in fuH as ministry beyond the local church. 

The purpose of the Commission on Equitable Compensation is to seek fairness both 
for pastors and local churches. Why should this commission be so concerned about eq- 
uity/fairness in clergy compensation? Our prayerful consideration of scriptural and historical 
foundations for our work lead us to note: 

a) Jesus says, "the laborer is worthy of his hire," (Luke 10:7) and Paul reminds us "you 
shall not muzzle the ox when it is treading out the grain," (1 Timothy 5: 18; Deuterono- 
mv 25:4). 

b) Wesley was concerned that clergy have a responsibility not to be "in debt so as to 
embarrass you in your work" (11321 and 11327), which implies that the church has 
responsibility that it neither lead its clergy into positions of embarrassing indebtedness, 
nor leave them there. 

c) The Great Commission to go into all the world, preaching, teaching, and baptizing 
brings with it a cost. Systems of clergy support which foster the use of the right pastor 
in the right place, hold up the hope of seeing the great commission bear its promised 

d) The Commission on Equitable Compensation embraces the great commandment to 
love our neighbors as we love ourselves by wanting for each pastor what our members 

189 Legislation 

want for themselves - compensation adequate to free persons for the work of pastoral 


Through our praying, thinking, and working toqether as laity and clergy from across 
this Conference, we make the following recommendations, which we believe will help us 
move toward fairness for both churches and pastors as we support ordained ministry in the 
NC Annual Conference. 

We recommend that Equitable Compensation be increased by 3% plus 1/2% each year 
hereafter, until the percentage increase is equal to that of the average full-time pastoral 
salary increase from the preceding year. 

I. Recommended Schedule of Minimum Compensation for 2001: 

A. Salary Schedule 

We recommend that the student minimum salary be based on 65% of the 
minimum salary of full-time pastors. 


(Full Connection, Associate, Probationary, Local Pastor) 

Salary $27,792 $28,765 

Gtilities 2.000 2,000 

$2^^ $30^7^ 
STUDENTS (Local Pastors or Conference Members) 

Salary $18,065 $18,697 

Gtilities 2.000 2.000 

$2T375B5 $2UW7 
(EDITORIAL NOTE: The 1999 Annual Conference asked that the following information be 
provided each year: For the year 2001 the dollar amount of increase in District 
Superintendents salary is $3,554 and the District Superintendents' utilities are paid by the 
district (see page 207); the dollar amount of increase in equitable compensation minium 
salary is $973 for full-time appointments.) 

B. Travel Expense 

Although travel is reimbursed by the charge as an item of pastoral expense, it is 
expected that the charge would provide at least $2,400 for travel expense. We 
encourage each charge to establish a plan to reimburse the pastor for all 
legitimate business mileage at the current rate established by the IRS. Where 
such a plan is established for reimbursement of business mileage, equitable 
compensation support shall not be affected by payment of travel expenses. 
However, where a reimbursement plan is not implemented and a travel allowance 
is given, any travel allowance in excess of $2,400 will result in a reduction of 
equitable compensation support. 

C. Pension Program 

Charges receiving Equitable Compensation Fund support are responsible for 
paying the total amount required for the Ministerial Pension Plan and the 
Comprehensive Protection Plan based on their pastor's cash base compensation 
(including funds from the Equitable Compensation Fund, Duke Endowment, and 
any other sources), and housing (percentage of cash base compensation 
designated by the General Board of Pension/Health Benefits _or housing 
allowance, if provided in lieu of parsonage). Cash base compensation plus 
housing is Plan Compensation. 

II. Principles Governing the CJse of Equitable Compensation Funds: 

The Pastor's base compensation is the responsibility of the charge; therefore, the 
charges of the North Carolina Annual Conference should be so arranged as to be able 
to assume full salary support. The Commission urges each charge receivinq Equitable 
Compensation Funds, its pastor, and the district superintendent responsible for that 
charge to administer the affairs of that charge to the end that it may move as rapidly 
as possible toward total self-support. To enable the Conference, the Commission, and 
the district superintendents to carry on their cooperative efforts in understanding, in 
harmony, ana for the Greatest good for all concerned, the following principles and 
procedures are set forth: 

A. In considering the base compensation for the charge, all income, including base 
compensation, bonuses, and other benefits not specifically excluded, are 
included as base compensation in determining appropriations from the Equitable 
Compensation Fund. Base compensation support for retired supply, interim 
supply, part-time local pastors, less than full-time Conference members, or 
associate pastors in other than larger parish arrangement of churches will not be 

B. Charges must be so arranged that no more than one-third of the total base 
compensation will come from the Equitable Compensation Fund on the first 
application from the charge. Charges seeking more than one-third supplement 
must provide specific information with their application, indicating the reasons for 

Legislation 190 

their inability to meet these guidelines. Information shall be made available to the 

Commission on Equitable Compensation and the district superintendents 

regarding the terms of Equitable Compensation support, giving the date of its 

inception and the present amount of support being received by the respective 


When the division of a charge is desired, Equitable Compensation Funds will be 

used only upon the recommendation of the Bishop, of the "Bishop's Task Force 

on the Division of Circuits," and the approval of tne cabinet. 

In the division of a charge in which one church seeks to become a station, it is 

recommended that such a church shall assume all base compensation 

obligations and its proportionate share of all apportionments. 

1. The remainder of the charge in such a division assumes full pastoral 
support and its proportionate share of all apportionments. In no case will 
the Commission on Equitable Compensation provide more than one-third 
of the base compensation required for such a division. 

2. When there is a division of a cnarge forming one or more student appoint- 
ments, each newly created charge must pay initially two-thirds of the 
pastoral support established by the division. 

C. Churches receiving Equitable Compensation Funds shall conduct an annual 
financial/stewardship campaign in the second year of receiving Equitable 
Compensation Funas to accurately gauge the level of financial support the local 
church can reasonably expect from its members. 

D. The Commission on Equitable Compensation further recommends that each 
charge which is receiving, or shall hereafter receive. Equitable Compensation 
Fund assistance, shall reduce this aid by at least ten (10) percent each year until 
the charge has achieved full self-support in ten years. The Commission wants to 
be clear at this point that its intent in this recommendation is that the charge will 
accept in full whatever increases are made in the minimum base compensation 
for their pastor each year and receive ten (10) percent less each year in aid from 
Equitable Compensation Funds than granted the previous year. 

E. Any Equitable Compensation Fund supplement will be terminated immediately 
upon information that the pastor has taken full-time secular employment. Such 
a charge may be reinstated at such time as its pastor returns to full-time or 
student status. Exceptions to this provision may be permitted only by the 
approval of the executive committee of the Commission on Equitable Compensa- 
tion upon the recommendation of the district superintendent of the pastor 
seeking for emergency reasons to be employed outside of his/her ministerial 

F. Equitable Compensation Funds are sent to charges who have applied for their 
use to provide tneir pastor with the minimum base compensation established by 
the Annual Conference. The monthly base compensation supplement checks 
sent by the Conference treasurer are to be deposited by the cnarge treasurer in 
the church or charge bank account. The checks are not to be endorsed and 
cashed by the pastor. 

G. Ethnic Minority and Women AMnisters: Each ethnic minority or woman minister, 
who is an associate member or a member in full connection of the HC Annual 
Conference, serving full-time, and who, in the opinion of the cabinet is rendering 
unusually effective service, will receive an incremental increase of $200 per 
service year, not to exceed $2,000 per year, for ten (10) years of full-time service, 
when such clergy person's salary and utilities is equal to the Conference 
minimum base compensation. 

Said incremental increase is to be administered by the Commission on Equitable 
Compensation upon recommendation of the cabinet, approval by the charge 
conference, and the district superintendent. Further, the local church shall be 
responsible for MPP and CPP payments on any incremental increase. 
This policy does not restrict the Equitable Compensation Commission, upon the 
recommendation of the cabinet, from making additional grants in extraordinary 
H. Churches or charges applying for Equitable Compensation Funds shall submit 
a request on the appropriate form supplied by the district superintendent. The 
request shall be carefully analyzed by the pastor, recording secretary of the 
charge conference, and the district superintendent. The form must have the 
signatures of the pastor, recording secretary of the charge conference, and the 
district superintendent affixed to it, and the request must have been approved by 
the Charge Conference. 

191 Legislation 

The Commission plans further consultation and study with other Conference 
agencies and resources to seek ways to more adequately provide for the temporal 
needs of our pastors and churches. 

The Commission will not fund any charge at the same time the charge is 
receiving funds from the Emerging Church Salary Fund.

205 Legislation 



The United Methodist Church is a connectional church, and all local churches 
participate in the mission and service giving of the larger church. The outreach and 
mission giving opportunities of the Connection are distributed to the churches of the 
NC Conference by means of a formula based on the financial performance in each 
local church. Every effort is made to develop a computation which is shared with 
fairness by all. Church leaders are encouraged to interpret the work of the Connection 
so that each congregation understands these funds to oe a necessary extension of the 
ministry and mission of the church beyond its local organization. 

1. The funds to be apportioned are: 

World Service and Conference Benevolences 

Ministerial Support and Connectional Administration 

Past Service Liability - Pensions 

Episcopal Fund 

Interdenominational Cooperation Fund 

Black College Fund 

Africa University Fund 

Mission Initiatives Fund (if continued by General Conference) 

2. Formula: The Apportionments for each year shall be based on the average 
of the total monies disbursed by each church in the four years immediately 
previous to the apportionment year less the approved exclusions each year, 
or on the most recent year less the approved exclusions, whichever is lower. 
The change in apportionments from the previous year shall not increase or 
decrease in excess of 15%. The exclusions are: Payments on World Service 
and Conference Benevolences, Ministerial Support and Connectional 
Administration, Past Service Liability - Pensions, Episcopal Fund, and all 
other apportionments; district work fund; principal and interest on indebted- 
ness; buildings and improvements; local benevolences paid directly by the 
local church; General and Conference Advance Specials; Ten Dollar Club; 
up to $4,500 for travel paid by a charge for each pastor; Gnited Methodist 
Student Day; Human Relations Day; Peace and Justice Sunday; Native 
American Awareness Sunday; One Great Hour of Sharing; World Commu- 
nion Sunday; GMW Funds sent to district or conference treasurer; housing 
allowance paid in lieu of furnished parsonage to a minister serving under 
Episcopal appointment in a charge of the Conference; offerings talcen for 
disasters as designated by the Disaster Response Committee and the 
Resident Bishop. The funds to be apportioned in section III.A.1 and 
the formula in this section may be modified slightly depending on 
General Conference action. 

3. Beginning with all new congregations started in the NC Conference after 
July 1, 1993j the following formula shall be used to determine a new 
congregation s base for setting apportioned contributions for mission and 
service giving: 




C 4A 4 No Cap 

D 3A + B ) 4 No Cap 

E 2A + B + C ) 4 No Cap 

F A + B + C + D ) 4* *No Cap 

G B + C + D + E ) 4 15% Cap** 

* Standard formula 

** Maximum % increase cap shall be the percentage determined by Annual Conference 

4. Apportionments to the churches shall be made by the Council on Finance 
and Administration (CFA) based on the current formula. Each cause shall 
be paid proportionately out of the income from funds received up to the 
amount fixed by the Annual Conference. In the event receipts shall fall short, 
all items shall be paid pro-rata. In the light of possible unforeseen and 
emergency need within the Annual Conference, the CFA is authorized to 
make supplementary appropriations between sessions of the Annual 
Conference. Such supplementary appropriations shall be made only from 
available undesignated funds and shall be reported in the Conference 
Journal for purposes of information. 

5. Apportionments will be delivered from the treasurer's office to the district 
superintendents by July 21, 2000. 

Legislation 206 

B. The following special offerings shall be taken in each local church and 
remitted to the Conference treasurer as separate items. They are not to be 
included in the Apportionments: United Methodist Student Day, Human 
Relations Day, Peace with Justice Sunday, Native American Awareness 
Sunday, One Great Hour of Sharing, World Communion Sunday. (Subject 
to General Conference action) 

C. No Conference agency's budget shall incorporate funds to be appropriated 
to a non-conference agency, without specific approval of the Council on 
A\inistries for program budget items or tne CFA for all non-program budget 
items. All funds granted to a non-conference agency must be spent 
consistent with the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church. 

D. No transfer of funds shall be made from one line item in the Conference 
Budget to another. 

E. All General Church Funds (World Service, Episcopal, Ministerial Education, 
Black Colleges, Africa University, Interdenominational Cooperation, Mission 
Initiatives, General Administration) and College Sustaining Fund, College 
Debt Retirement, Past Service Liability Fund, Jurisdictional Conference, and 
Methodist Building Routine and Capital Maintenance Funds will be raised 
and paid out in the same year. All otner funds will be raised and paid out in 
the subsequent year on a schedule determined by the CFA. 

P. Investment Policy: The investment of the funds of the conference shall be 

such that funds available for mission are maximized in a manner consistent 
with the preservation of capital and with the Social Principles of The United 
Methodist Church. Investments are with the United Methodist Foundation, 
area banks, and with specific minority financial institutions within the 
bounds of the NC Conference. The Conference is also a member of Project 
G. Monies paid by the churches shall be reported to the statistician by the 

pastors at the end of the year on the Table II, Financial Report. The Table 
I and Table II reports for 2000 shall be due to the statistician no later than 
January 31,2001. 
H. The Council may enact its own bylaws governing meetings, quorum, and 

other matters of procedure as autnorized in the Discipline, I 609.5. b. 
I. The Council shall maintain a central treasury for all Conference agencies as 

authorized by I 610.11 of the Discipline, and the 1953 session of the 
Annual Conference. Annual Conference boards and agencies, including 
those separately incorporated, are required to maintain their funds on 
deposit in the central treasury unless exempted by the Annual Conference 
or the Discipline. Exemptions are granted to the Methodist Home for 
Children, the Methodist Retirement Homes, the Colleges, the United 
Methodist Foundation, Board of Missions, Inc., and Asbury Homes. 
J. All new programs or entities which would not be funded by an existing 

approved budget shall be referred to the CFA for review of budget needs 
and supplemental funds available prior to approval by Annual Conference. 
If the item is approved, the next year's budget shall be amended to include 
the necessary funds based on the CFA recommendation. 

Any orqanization designated as a Conference Advance Special may ask 
local churches to consider opportunities for givinq. It shall be at the 
discretion of the local church as to whether, when and how these opportuni- 
ties will be presented to the membership. Solicitation or private campaign 
may not be taken directly into local churches of the Conference through 
solicitation in classes or other groups or by the use of membership lists 
(either partial or in entirety). 

Approval is given to the requests of the following agencies and programs for the 
privilege of soliciting funds under these policies throughout the District or Conference. 

A. Christmas Offering for District programs and/or projects. 

B. The Commission on Congregational Development for the promotion of the 
Church Extension Ten Dollar Club and the John Wesley Endowment for 
Congregational Development. 

C. The Board of Directors for Outdoor and Camping Ministries, Inc. to solicit from 
church groups and individuals, materials and money for specific projects for the 
four camps of the North Carolina Conference. 

D. The State Commission on Campus Ministry for the privilege of private 
solicitation for special gifts for the benefit of special works in the state- 
supported institutions of higher education. 

E. Methodist Retirement Homes, Incorporated; Methodist Home for Children; 
Louisburg College; Methodist College; North Carolina Wesleyan College; 

20 7 Legislation 

and Asbury Homes for the privilege of private solicitation and receipt of such 
funds as may be directed thereto with the understanding that such 

F. The United Methodist Foundation, Incorporated, as provided in its charter. 

G. The Disaster Response Committee upon joint decision of the committee 
and the Resident Bishop to respond to disasters within the bounds of the 
NC Annual Conference. 

The CFA continues to recommend that 100% "Missional Service Giving" be the on-qoing 

priority. The Council also recommends that stewardship continue to be a missional focus, 

and a Conference priority. 


CFA continues to recommend, as sustained by the 1998 Annual Conference, that the 
percentage change in district superintendents' salary be the same as the average 
percentage change in salary (salary and utilities) for the prior year for all full-time 
pastors serving local charges in the MC Annual Conference. The percentage 
change, 2000 over 1999, is 4.76% ($973 or 3.5% increase for Equitable 
Compensation minimum salary. See page 188); therefore, the 2001 salary 
for district superintendents should increase by 4.76% ($3,554), to 
$78,212.00. Utilities for the district superintendent are paid by the district. 

6, ORGANIZATION and PROCEDGRE (presented for information only) 

A. The audit for 2000 will be by McQladrey & Pullen, Raleigh, NC, and CFA is

B. Policy and Rules 

1 . The extent of the benefits provided by the insurance coverage is decided by 
Annual Conference action. Administrative rules and rates are adopted by the 
Insurance Committee. The specific carrier for insurance coverage is selected 
by the Insurance Committee. 

2. Effective January 1, 2001 the North Carolina Conference will join the 
HealthFlex health insurance plan administered by the General Board of 
Pension and Health Benefits in Evanston, Illinois. Health, pharmacy, and 
dental benefits will be administered by Cigna. Mental health benefits will be 
administered by United Behavioral Health. Additional benefits will include 
Medical Reimbursement and Dependent Care Accounts. Details may be 
obtained from the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits or from 
the Treasurer's Office. 

3. Annual election of benefits will become effective on each January 1. A 
change of life circumstances (divorce, death, loss of coverage) will allow 
mid-year changes to annual elections. A participant must be covered in the 
HealthFlex plan for five years to retain retirement health benefits. All 
participants enrolled on January 1, 2001 will be prorated under this five year 

4. Effective January 1, 1995, eligible clergy received disability coverage 
through the Basic Protection Plan of the General Board of Pensions. 
Effective January 1, 1997, this benefit is 70% of the greater of compensa- 
tion or the DAC less benefits received from CPP and Social Security.

there is no change in benefits. Medicare is the secondary carrier until 
retirement. At the time of retirement, the participant must be enrolled in 
Medicare parts A & B to be eligible for the Medicare Supplement. 

7. The Insurance Committee provides an appeal process tor any participant 
who feels that claims have not been adequately satisfied. A written appeal 
with all pertinent information should be made to the Insurance Committee 
chairperson with a copy to the Conference Treasurer's Office. 

8. Payment for the church's portion of the insurance programs must be made 
by the church/charge treasurer. Clergy personal checks cannot be accepted 
as payment for the church's portion. The life insurance premium is paid by 
the cfiurch/charge. 

9. Premiums for health and life insurance may be paid in ADVANCE on a 
monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. 

10. When there is a change of address, or a change in family status, it is the 
insured's responsibility to notify the Treasurer's Office within 30 days. The 
toll free number to the Methodist Building in Raleigh is 1-800-849-4433 
where a staff person continues to provide personal attention to insurance 

1 1 . Effective January 1 , 200 1 Health insurance for the subscriber may continue 
for 9 months after employment is terminated or credentials are surrendered 
provided that full payment of the monthly premiums is made in advance. 
The continuation of life insurance beyond the termination of employment 
is not permitted by the life insurance carrier. 

12. Lay persons or clergy on maternity/family medical leave may continue their 
insurance coverage, as long as the premiums are paid. 

13. The Insurance Committee may terminate the coverage for non-payment of 

211 Legislation 

premiums. Insurance payments which are 60 days late (from the date of the 
bill) will result in termination of benefits. Termination will take place on the 
last day of the month in which the 60th day has occurred. Benefits may be 
reinstated without lapse in coverage if full payment is made within 30 days 
of the termination date. Thereafter, insurance coverage may be reinstated 
upon fullpayment and coverage will be effective the first day of the following 
month. The one-year waiting period for pre-existing conditions will apply to 
all reinstatements where a lapse in coverage occurs. 

14. Clergy or lay persons who choose not to join the group within 30 days of 
becoming eligible, will be added as late applicants upon completion of a 
new enrollment form. Adding family members or cnanginq the type of 
coverage while enrolled is permitted at anytime during enrollment, in the 
absence of a Certificate of Insurance, a one-year waiting period for pre- 
existing conditions after enrollment will continue to be required for late 

15. In case of termination of coverage, the church is responsible for the 
premium until the Treasurer's Office is notified in writing of such termina- 

16. Participants applying at any time other than the initial enrollment period 
(thirty days from the date first eligible) would be subject to the one year pre- 
existing conditions clause. Submission of a valid Certificate of Insurance 
may eliminate or decrease this 12 month clause. The exception to this rule 
would be possible by a change in life status causing loss of coverage: 
divorce, death of spouse, loss of spouse's employment, reduction of hours 
regarding spouse's coverage. 

III. Statement of Intent 

The NC Annual Conference established a Group Health and Life Insurance Plan with 
the intent of providing coverage for the active and retired clergy. However, the Annual 
Conference reserves the right to terminate the health and life contracts, in whole or in 
part, at any time. The Annual Conference, at any time or from time to time, may 
amend any or all of the provisions of the health or life plan without the consent of 
individual participants.

VI. The Insurance Committee is grateful to the Annual Conference for the support 

we have to provide the best possible health and life insurance benefits. We constantly 
monitor our insurance programs and their costs. 

The Insurance Committee has marketed our insurance needs in the winter and 
spring of 2000. The presentation to be mailed to Annual Conference members before 
we meet in session will reflect the most serious consideration the Committee can give. 
We will be constant in our work to model responsible stewardship, as well as, concern 
for our local churches and the participants in our plan. 

My thanks to the Committee for its faithful service. The Treasurer's Office, 
especially Caroline Buckland, Sharon Strother, and Allen Norris, has worked hard to 
help the Conference with this ministry. They, along with Dr. F. Belton Joyner, Jr., 
deserve our profound thanks.

Effective Date - January 1, 2000 

The Itinerant Clergy Moving Expense Committee met to study moving expense needs and 

The Committee makes the following recommendations. 

I. Eligibility 

A. Pastors of local churches continuing under appointment to local churches within 
the Conference, district superintendents, and Conference ministerial staff whose 
salaries are paid from the Conference treasurer's office. 

B. Pastors in section l.A. who become Conference Evangelists upon moving from an 
appointment to new residence. Their moving expense to return to any of the above 
categories will also be paid. 

C. Pastors in section l.A. who retire from serving appointment or who assume 
approved disability leave or return into active service from approved disability leave. 

D. Widows or widowers of clergy in section l.A. upon moving from place of appoint- 
ment to new residence. 

E. Pastors moving into an appointment in the North Carolina Conference to assume 
full-time or student appointments under section l.A. 

F. Interim Supply pastors 

G. Pastors being appointed to leave of absence are entitled to moving expense for one 
leave of absence. 

H. Persons who are called to active military duty will be entitled to moving expense at 
the time of call up, if need be, and at the time of return, if need be, if not covered 
by the military, with substantiation of the military orders. 

I. Persons moving who are not defined above will not be eligible to make claim. 

II. Payment of Claims 

A. All reimbursements must be substantiated with paid receipts for actual moving 
expenses. All reimbursements must be for expenses which are deductible for 
income tax purposes according to Internal Revenue code. Section 217, non- 
taxable fringe benefits. Payment will be granted to all who are eligible to make 
claims as follows: 

1. Active itinerant clergy in section l.A., I.B., I.E., l.F. ,I.G. and l.H. (except 
retiring clergy, widows, widowers, and clergy couples) will receive reimburse- 
ment of costs up to $1,450.00 with submission of paid receipts for actual 
moving expense. 

2. Retiring itinerant clergy, widows, or widowers will receive reimbursement of 
costs up to $2,150.00 with submission of paid receipts for actual moving 
expenses. The retirement amount may be granted upon request when taking 

213 Legislation 

disability leave in lieu of receiving the retirement benefit at retirement. 
3. Itinerant clergy couples will receive reimbursement of costs up to $1,700.00 
with submission of^ paid receipts for actual moving expenses. If only one 
member of the clergy couple is re-appointed, section ll.A.l. will apply. 

B. Travel: The IRS standardmileage rate for moving expense deductions is $. 10 per 
mile. This rate may be paid per mile per vehicle for a single trip to move each 
vehicle to the new residence. If a vehicle is used to move household goods, i.e^ in 
lieu of a moving company, additional trips may be reimbursed as necessary. The 
per trip mileage will be computed from appointment to appointment, or from the 
Conference boundary to the appointment, or the appointment to the resi- 
dence/Conference boundary (in case of retirement) whichever is less. Either the 
mileage as described above or actual out of pocket expenses for gas, oil, etc. may 
be reimbursed. 

C. IRS guidelines require that moving expense reimbursements be reported on a W-2. 
Based on recommendation from legal counsel and their consultations with the 
Internal Revenue Service, we recommend that the W-2 be issued by the local 
church. The Conference Treasurer will provide to the local church all moving 
expense information to be reported on the W-2. The Conference Treasurer wiH 
make payment to the new local church appointment. The new local church will pay 
the clergy and include the moving expense on the W-2 that they issue to the pastor 
at the end of the year. In absence of a new appointment, payment will be made to 
and reported by the old appointment. The Conference treasurer will make this 
payment as soon as the district superintendents have received the completed 
document, "So You're Moving" checklist properly signed along with all appropriate 
receipts to substantiate expenses. This will fulfill the 1996 Discipline, 1f262.2f(5), 
which states "The chairperson of the committee on pastor-parish relations, the 
chairperson of the board of trustees, and pastor shall make an annual review of the 
church owned parsonage(s) to assure proper maintenance." Moving expense funds 
will be withheld by the Conference treasurer if the district superintendent 
determines that the parsonage was inadequately cleaned or was damaged beyond 
normal wear and tear. If an inspection by the district superintendent and the 
pastor-parish relations committee or the parsonage committee reveals monetary 
needs ror cleaning or repairs, or for having the fuel tank filled, the remaining 
balance of the moving expense due said pastor shall be made payable to the 
respective district to pay for needed cleaning or repairs. If the district superinten- 
dent or the moving pastor is NOT in agreement with said pastor-parish relations 
committee or the parsonage committee, the superintendent may request the 
arbitration committee of the clergy living committee to inspect the parsonage 
involved and give an impartial recommendation. 

D. The Conference treasurer will make an advance payment up to $600.00 to eligible 
itinerant clergy to cover the expense of deposit and fees for moving expenses prior 
to their move, upon approval by the district superintendent. Those receiving^ an 
advance must substantiate their expenditures, and any money that is left over shall 
be refunded to the Conference treasurer. All advance payments shall be included 
in W-2 information provided to the local church by the Conference Treasurer for 
inclusion on the W-2. 

E. No additional claim can be made against a local church, district, or the Conference 
for payment of moving expenses. 

F. Reimbursable expenses include the cost of boarding and moving domestic 
animals, the moving of recreational vehicles, boats, etc., moving household and 
personal goods, travel as defined in II. B., lodging, packing, crating, in-transit 
storage and insurance, labor costs, and any other expense necessary to physically 
move household items. Expenses which are not reimbursable include meals, 
purchase of household items, or any other item not reasonable or necessary for 
the move. 

G. The request for moving expense reimbursement must be received in the 
Treasurer's Office no later than four months following the date of the move. 

H. Reimbursement will be considered a qualified, non-taxable fringe benefit not 
subject to income and self-employrrient tax when: 

• Your move is 50 or more miles from the old appointment to the new 
appointment and 

• Your new appointment is full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 
months at the new location. 

If your appointment does not meet the above conditions, then the reimbursement 
will be reported as taxable for both income and employment tax. 
Review Committee 

A. There will be a Review Committee consisting of two persons appointed by the 
chairperson of the Council on Finance and Administration, one district superinten- 
dent appointed by the Bishop, the Conference treasurer, and the- director of 
Ministerial Relations. 

B. The Review Committee will consider and have final authority over any questionable 
or disallowed claim or special claim beyond allowances set in the approved plan.

Legislation 214 


The North Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry is pleased and privileged to 
present to the clergy session of the North Carolina Annual Conference our report for 1999. 

Our board is a strong, representative body from the clergy and laity of this Annual 
Conference wrestling constantly with its responsibilities outlined in The Book of Discipline 
1996 (11633). These duties require the board to exercise stronqcare in its examination of 
candidates for ordination in a way which is both fair and diligent. The Board also seeks always 
to encourage and sustain those in the process and to provide resources for growth for those 
already involved with ministry to local churches and other places of mission. 

To provide this report, your Board of Ordained A\inistry members have given nine (9) full 
days in meetings and interviews along with innumerable times for committee assignments. All 
of this is summarized in the names and recommendations found in this submission of our work 
for your approval. 

The duties of the Board of Ordained Ministry include: 

1) To assume the primary responsibility for the enlistment of ordained clergy, with due 
regard for the inclusive nature of the Churcn. It provides guidance for these persons in the 
process of education, training, and ordination. 

2) To examine all applicants as to their fitness for ordained ministry and their election as: 
a) Full-time Local Pastors, b) Associate Members, c) Probationary Members, and d) Full 
Members of the Annual Conference. 

3) To interview and report recommendations concerning: a) students to be appointed to 
attend school, b) candidates for ordination as Deacon, and c) candidates for ordination as 

4) To interview applicants and make recommendations concerning changes in ministerial 
relationships: Leaves of Absence, Retirement, Sabbatical Leaves, Disability Leaves, Less-than- 
Full-time appointments, and Readmission to or the termination of Conference membership. 

5) To provide support services for the ordained minister's career development, including 
personal and career counseling, continuing education, assistance in preparation for retirement, 
and matters pertaining to ministerial morale. 

6) To provide a means of evaluating the effectiveness of the clergy in the Annual 

7) To interpret the high ethical standards of ministry as set forth in The Book of 
Discipline 1 996, and to study matters pertaining to character. 

8) To administer the portion of the Ministerial Education Fund for use by the Annual 

Members of the North Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry have worked 
diligently to fulfill their duties! This continues to be a time of transition. The new legislation 
adopted at General Conference in 1996 has significantly changed the structure and function 
of the Board! For example, the Board of Ordained Ministry now has two divisions: The Division 
of Deacons and Diaconal AMnistries and the Division of Elders and Local Pastors. This new 
ordering means that new candidates will no longer be ordained deacon and later elder. Instead, 
candidates will seek to be either a Deacon in Full Connection or an Elder in Full Connection. 
Another change from General Conference involves the office of Diaconal Ministry. After those 
now in process complete their work for Diaconal Ministry, no new diaconals will be 
consecrated. Those interested in specialized ministry and called to word and service will pursue 
ordination as Deacons in Full Connection. These are just a few of the changes. As we continue 
in this time of transition, we covet your prayers, patience, and understanding. 

This year we are pleased to report that eighteen (18) persons will be ordained as Deacons 
on the Elder track, and one (1) person elected Probationary Member and Commissioned, the 
first time we have had this relationship under The 1996 Discipline. There are two (2) persons 
making the transition from Diaconal Ministry to ordination as Deacons in Full Connection. Our 
class for Elders in Full Connection numbers twenty-three (23). This year's retirement class 
includes twenty-one (21) Full Members and one (1) Associate Members. In addition, five 
pastors retired ad interim, including four Full Members and one Local Pastor. Our large 
number of retiring pastors each year continues to provide opportunities for many persons to 
enter this field of service! 

Please note that various committee reports follow this introduction and are significant for 
the various areas of concern they address. All of this material, as well as our supportive services 
during the year, have been provided through the Office of Ministerial Relations under the 
leadership of Dr. F. Belton Joyner, Jr., Robbie W. Barrett, and Lynn J. Morris. We are indebted 
to these individuals for their excellent work and dedication to the Ordained Ministry of our 
Annual Conference. 


Local pastors in progress or serving prior to 1988 must complete at least the five-year 
Course of Study. 

2 ID Legislation 

The Board requires that ministers having completed the basic five-year Course of Study 
continue to attend the Course of Study School in the summer, enrolling in at least four years 
of Advanced Studies during any six-year period. These courses, offered on a seminary level, 
would increase the competency of our Local Pastors (1980). 

It is required that they complete the five-year Ministerial Course of Study and a minimum 
of sixty (60) semester hours toward the Bachelor of Arts or an equivalent degree in a college 
or university listed by the University Senate, or competency equivalence through an external 
degree program at a college or university listed by the University Senate (198m. 
It is required that they complete the five-year Ministerial Course of Study and a minimum 
of sixty (60) semester hours toward the Bachelor of Arts or an equivalent degree in a college 
or university listed by the University Senate, or competency equivalence through an external 
degree program at a college or university listed by the University Senate (1985). 
Each candidate must complete the following seminary level courses to be eligible for 
interview, effective June 1998: 

1 . A course in preaching that includes a practicum, laboratory, or field experience in the 
preparation, delivery, and evaluation of sermons. 

2. A course in public worship that includes the theory, theology, and practice of planning 
and leading public worship. 

Attention is called to the course requirements contained in 1I326(3)a of The 1996 Book of 
Discipline. Candidates must complete the Methodism courses PRIOR to the interview: 
1. United Methodist Polity, 2. United Methodist Theology and Doctrine 

3. A History of Methodism

The Committee on Conference Relations has as its primary responsibility the assisting of 
any clergy who seek to change or terminate their relationship with the Annual Conference. 
Changes in conference relationship may occur in any of the following ways: 1) discontinuation, 
2) leave of absence, 3) retirement, 4) sabbatical leave, 5) maternity/paternity leave, 6) family 
leave, 7) termination of conference relationship (surrender of credentials). 

The Conference Relations Committee meets with the person who is seeking a change in 
conference relationship upon the request of that person, or upon request of the Cabinet or the 
Board of Ordained Ministry. The committee attempts to determine what is appropriate in each 
case by posing questions, offering counsel, and providing support. The committee then 
discusses the request and acts upon it by making a recommendation to the Board of Ordained 
Ministry. In any event, the person requesting the change and the Conference Relations 
Committee acting on the request must follow the requirements in The Book of Discipline. 

The Book of Discipline provides specific guidelines applying to each of the categories 
of conference membership. All those persons in the various categories of conference 
membership (other than the effective relationship) should remember to familiarize themselves 
with and adhere to the disciplinary guidelines which apply to that category. TTie Committee on 
Conference Relations issues a yearly reminder of these guidelines through a letter approved 
by the Board of Ordained Ministry at its annual meeting. Following the appropriate guidelines 
is particularly important for clergy on leave of absence; for these persons, exercise of any 
ministerial function is restricted to the Charge Conference in which their membership is held. 
The Conference Relations Committee would take this opportunity to reiterate that pastors on 
leave of absence cannot perform weddings, conduct funerals, or administer the sacraments 
outside the bounds (both geographical and membership bounds) of that charge conference. 

Every Spring (since 1987') the Conference Relations Committee has hosted a luncheon 
for those who will be retiring from the North Carolina Annual Conference at the June session 
of that year. At this luncheon, the retirees and their spouses are informed about various 
matters relating to their retirement such as insurance, housing, and pension benefits. This 
year's retirement luncheon was held at St. Luke United Methodist Church in Goldsboro on 
Tuesday, April 25, 2000.

Legislation 216 


The Continuing Education Committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry has the 
responsibility of developing continuing education programs that will enable ministers to fulfill 
the Disciplinary requirements. According to the 1996 Book of Discipline, 11348. 1 , "Clergy shall 
be expected to continue their education and spiritual growth throughout their careers, 
including carefully developed personal programs of study augmented periodically by 
involvement in organized educational and spiritual growth activities." The 1996 Discipline, 
11348.2, further states, "In most cases the ordained ministers' continuing education and 
spiritual growth program should allow for such leaves at least one week each year and at least 
one month during one year of each quadrennium. Such leaves shall not be considered as part 
of the ministers' vacations and shall be planned in consultation with their charges or other 
agencies to which they are appointed as well as the bishop, district superintendent, and Annual 
Conference Continuing Education Committee." 

In providing the resources to enable pastors to meet the minimum requirement of the 
Discipline, the Committee on Continuing Education has edited a brochure that applies to all 
clergy and diaconal ministers of the NC Annual Conference. The brochure contains 
information defining Continuing Education, the role of the local church, and how the pastor's 
continuing education can be financed. The brochure is printed as part of this report. 
Continuing Education for Ministry in the NC Annual Conference: 

Rationale: A prime expectation of every minister of the NC Annual Conference is 
professional growth. In recent years, one of the major avenues through which such growth 
occurred has been continuing education. In the 1996 Book of Discipline, 1325.2, it states, 
"TTiere are professional responsibilities that elders are expected to fulfill and that represent a 
fundamental part of their accountability and a primary basis for their continued eligibility for 
annual appointment. Growth in vocational competence and effectiveness through continuing 
formation is expected of conference members. 

Definition: Continuing education is defined as an organized structured program of 
formal study under competent leadership with clearly defined goals and objectives. Here the 
key words are "organized," "competent leadership," and "clearly defined goals and objectives." 
By this definition certain activities, though worthwhile, are not considered "continuing 
education"; e.g., degree programs, recreational programs, promotional meetings, worship 
services, entertainments, undirected reading, and study travel (except for limited lecture, 
seminar, or workshop time), and the like. 

The Conference Program: The Conference Board of Ordained Ministry, through the 
Committee on Continuing Education, performs three functions: 1) it sets minimum continuing 
education standards for ministry; 2) it establishes guidelines for continuing education; and S) 
it seeks to insure their availability. 

1. Minimum Standards: The NC Conference has established as a minimum standard one 
Continuing Education Unit (CECl) to be earned by each minister from an approved continuing 
education program each year. One CEG is defined as ten contact hours of participation in an 
approved continuing education program. 

2. Guidelines for Continuing Education Programs: CEO's will be approved for those 
persons sponsored by organizations which are accredited by a) a regional educational agency 
(such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), b) a professional accrediting 
agency (such as the American Medical Association), or c) the Council on the Continuing 
Education Gnit. It should also be noted that only those programs which relate directly to 
ministerial growth and development will be approved. 

3. Insuring their Availability: Efforts by the Board of Ordained Ministry to insure the 
availability of continuing education programs include encouraging conference-related and 
other colleges within the Conference Dounds to offer courses for ministers, providing 
supplementary financial aid for ministers, publicizing approved programs, and identifying 
specific subject areas for needed programs. 

Role of the Local Church: In addition to the minister, the local church has a significant 
stake in the success of continuing education programs. The local church, therefore, has an 
important role to play in continuing education. 

The Pastor-Parish Relations Committee of the Local Church: 

1. Confers with the pastor and the district superintendent in the development of a 
continuing education program which will enhance the total ministry of the church. 

2. Provides study leaves at least one week each year and at least one month during one 
year of each quadrennium. Such study leaves are not to be considered vacation time. (The 
Book of Discipline, 1996, 11348.2) 

3. Recommends to the church's Finance Committee budgetary funds to be applied 
toward the minister's continuing education program. In providing funds for continuing 
education programs, the Pastor-Parish Relations Committee should insure that only those 
programs which meet both the definitions and specific guidelines above are funded. 

27 7 Legislation 

Financial Aid to Clergy: Funding for continuing education is the combined 
responsibility of the participant, tne congregation, the sponsoring institution, and the Annual 
Conference. Conference funds for continuing education are derived as a portion of Conference 
apportionments. Thus, it is not possible (nor is it desirable) for the Conference to assume a 
major responsibility. 

All persons under episcopal appointment to charges. Conference staff positions, district 
superintendencies. Conference Evangelists, and Conference-related agencies and institutions, 
retired supply, and Extension Ministry categories C and D (with total funding for all category 
C and D applications being no more than $1500) are eligible for grants from Conference funds 

1 . The program does not lead to advancement from one level of Conference relationship 
to another. 

2. The program meets the definitions and Conference guidelines described above. 

3. The applicant has documented his or her efforts to secure funding from other sources, 
including localchurch, Duke Endowment, and personal. 

4. The application for a grant is filed on the appropriate form which furnishes complete 
information about the event and bears the signatures of the applicant, the Pastor-Parish 
Chairperson, and district superintendent. 

Limits to Conference Funds: 

1 . The maximum grant to an individual applicant over one conference year is $400.00. 

2. For a one CECJ event, no more than $156; a two CEG event, $300; a three CEG event, 
a maximum of $400 if the cost of the event merits it. 

3. The event must involve some definite measure of intensive study by the participant and 
offer at least OME Continuing Education Unit. 

4. Grants for Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) can be given when the CPE program offers 
the required CEG credits. No more than $400 per CPE unit will be granted. Grants for CPE are 
given only for non-degree programs. 

5. Holy Land Trips - A grant according to the current policy may be made once in a 
pastor's career, provicfed funding is available. 

Monitoring Continuing Education Units: 

1. The district superintendent, in annual consultation, may suggest to the clergy or 
diaconal minister the area of continuing education he or she should take to facilitate his or her 
professional grov^h. The pastor's annual Continuing Education Report will be given to the 
district superintendent at tne annual consultation or other appropriate time. 

2. Clergy shall have the responsibility for securing from the institution granting Continuing 
Education credit a record of earned credit and providing a copy of this record to his or her 
district superintendent. 

3. It is the responsibility of each participant to determine, in consultation with the 
Committee on Continuing Education, if a proposed program meets the criteria prior to 
participation and funding. 

Homer E. Morris, Chairperson 

From year to year, the primary goal of your Committee on Enlistment remains the sarne: 
to raise the consciousness of our constituency within the bounds of the North Carolina 
Conference so that identification and enlistment of ordained ministers is an ongoing concern 
that touches every dimension of our church. 

As a new millennium begins, the Conference Committee on Enlistment continues to 
challenge the clergy and laity of this conference to identify youth, young adults, and second 
career adults who need to answer the call to ordained ministry placed upon them by God. This 
is not as simple a task as it appears, with many persons ignoring God's call to pursue different 
vocations, often ones which provide better pay and benefits. The role of the church in this 
process is to confirm the claim of God upon tne life of these called persons and to direct them 
to the various District Committees on Ordained Ministry. 

In adhering to the church's mandate for inclusiveness (The Book of Discipline, 1996, 
1I633.2a), one of the responsibilities of the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry is the 
enlistment and recruitment of men and women of all races and ethnic origins for ministry to 
be ordained clergy persons. Your Committee on Enlistment has lifted up this mandate with 
intentionality. ^r^r^n 

There will be a denominational event called Exploration held November 10-12, 2000 in 
Texas. Our conference hopes to send more than twenty youth and young adults as persons 
who are exploring God's call upon their lives to enter ordained ministry. Your Committee on 
Enlistment will be intentional about reaching out to both men and women, as well as persons 
of all races and ethnic origins, to be potential participants in Exploration 2000. 

In addition, we are presently working in conjunction with the Western North Carolina 
Conference in putting together a similar event for North Carolina Gnited Methodism's high 
school and college students. A tentative date of October 26-28, 2001 has been set, with the 

Legislation 218 

site still to be determined. A design team is in place, and proqress is being made in planning 
this event, which should reach a much larger number of people than the national Exploration 
event. Again, we will strive to involve people of all races and ethnic origins, teenage boys and 
girls, and persons from every county in the state. When the time for publicizing this event 
comes, your Committee on Enlistment would appreciate the help of every local church in the 

In order to reach college students seeking to answer God's call to ordained ministry, we 
are putting together a "speakers' bureau," consisting of young pastors, mid-career ministers, 
and retired clergy. Persons from this bureau would then be asked to make a presentation at 
a Wesley Foundation function within the bounds of the conference. Discussions with various 
campus ministers continue, and the formation of such a pool of resource people remains a 
priority of your Enlistment Committee. 

This committee is also developing ways to reach those persons who sense God's call to 
enter ordained ministry as a second career. Although nothing has yet been planned, we hope 
to work together with the Duke Divinity School and the Western North Carolina Conference 
in implementing a workshop or seminar on "Ordained Ministry as a Second Career" in Durham 
sometime in the near future. 

Lastly, the Enlistment Committee is prepared to set up displays promoting the vocation 
of ordained ministry at conference youth events this summer. There was a good response to 
this initiative last summer at ACS. We hope to use this method of enlistment at all conference 
youth events this summer.! 

Mack McMillan, Chairperson 

The Ministerial Education Fund (MEF) is one of the most "unsung blessings" of our 
connectional support! In addition to being the underlying support to our seminaries, it provides 
invaluable support for the following ministries: Annual Conf^erence Board of Ordained Ministry 
for programs tney provide for clergy and diaconal ministers; scholarships for students studying 
for the ordained and diaconal ministry in the 13 outstanding United Methodist seminaries and 
in non-Gnited Methodist seminaries approved by the Division of Ordained Ministry and taught 
by seminary professors and conference leaders throughout the United Methodist Church; 
Continuing Education; Course of Study Schools (more than 2,300 people are involved in 12 
Course of Study Schools); research and special programs related to candidacy and enlistment; 
pastoral care initiatives; clergy women concerns; racial and ethnic concerns; spiritual 
formation; testing and evaluation; training of boards of ordained ministry; international 
theological education; jurisdictional block grants; supervision issues and Dempster Fellowships. 
All of tnese ministries are nurtured by money from the Ministerial Education Fund. 

The general policies for the North Carolina Annual Conference's portion of the AMnisterial 
Education Fund (25% of MEF apportionments) are set by the Board of Ordained Ministry. This 
year, the Board approved an addition to the guidelines for eligibility. The guideline related to 
enrollment requirements now reads: Students must be enrolled as full-time students. Full- 
time means twelve (12) hours minimum in undergraduate school and nine (9) hours in 
seminary per semester. Exceptions related to certified medical disabilities will be 
considered. " Brochures with guidelines and policies for the MEF scholarships are available 
from the Office of Ministerial Relations. 

Some interesting facts regarding MEF are: 

♦ More than $325 million has been given by local congregations to the 
MEF since 1968. 

♦ More than $80 million from the MEF has supported conference board 
services in each annual conference since 1970. 

♦ MEF supports Duke Divinity School, which for over 60 years has prepared men

Since 1971 the Committee on Pastoral Care has served the North Carolina Annual 
Conference by providing financial aid for confidential professional counseling and marriage and 
family enrichment. TTie Committee is comprised of five members from the Board of Ordained 
Ministry (one of whom serves as chair); one representative from the Conference Clergy Living 
Committee; one representative from the Clergy Partners Association; one Pastoral Counselor; 
and one member from the Commission on Health and Human Services. Funding for grants 
and expenses of the committee is included in the budget of the Board of Ordained Ministry 
and the awarding of grants is dependent upon the availability of funds. 

Financial aid is available to both clergy and diaconal ministers and their families. The 
financial grants, of up to $400.00 per family, are provided to cover one-half of the cost of 
counseling sessions. Ministers under the NC Conference Blue Cross/Blue Shield Health 
Insurance Program should review the Health Care Benefit Program Book as up to 80% of 
financial coverage is provided for outpatient psychiatric care. The coordination of insurance 
benefits and Pastoral Care Grants should not exceed 100% of fees charged. 

The Committee on Pastoral Care encourages participation in marriage and family 
enrichment events, including those focusing on the needs of single as well as married 
ministers. Grants of up to $100 per individual, or $200 per family or couple are available. A 
schedule and/or outline of the events, leaders' names and credentials, and verification of 
participation should accompany a letter of application for the grant. 




Whereas, conference clergy and diaconal ministers and their families are eligible for 
grants, a family is defined as dependents of the minister living in the minister's home or 
parsonage, including spouse, children, parents, and grandparents. Children of the minister are 
eligible whether or not attending college or living at liome through the age of 22. 

Persons who qualify for financial grants: 

1 . Clergy who are members of the NC Annual Conference whose status is active, retired or 
on leave in accordance with fH 351, 352, or 353 of The Book of Discipline (1996), OR 
any person, regardless of conference relationship, who is serving a local church of the NC 
Annual Conference, or a dependent. 

2. Diaconal Ministers, or candidates who are serving a local church, members of the NC 
Annual Conference, and whose status is active, retired, or on leave. 

Special circumstances: 

Grant eligibility continues for two years for persons who have terminated their relationship 
with The CJnited Methodist Church, for surviving spouses of ministers, and for former spouses 
of eligible persons. 

Only counselors or therapists who meet the following criteria qualify to receive grants 
from the Committee on Pastoral Care: 

Psychiatrist: American Medical Association (AA\A) Board Certification, North Carolina License; 
Psychologist (Clinical): Licensed Practicing Psycholoqist, North Carolina License; 
Pastoral Counselor: Member, Fellow, or Diplomat ofthe American Association of Pastoral 
Counselors, Inc. (AAPC) 

Counselor: Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Thereapists 
(AAMFT), North Carolina Certified Marriage and Family Therapists, North Carolina Licensed 
Practicing Counselors (LPC) 

Social worker: Member Association of Certified Social Workers (ACSW) 

The counselor or therapist, at the request of the qualifying client who is receiving the 
counseling, is to make application for a grant to the Chairperson ofthe Committee on Pastoral 
Care in the following manner: 

1 . The counselor or therapist requests an application form, and instructions from the Office 
of Ministerial Relations. This request should be addressed in care of the Office of 
Ministerial Relations, PO Box 10955, Raleigh, NC 27605. 

2. Once the application and instructions for a Pastoral Care Grant are received by the 
counselor/therapist, and a determination is made that the client qualifies, the application 
should be completed and returned to the Chairperson of the Committee on Pastoral 
Care. To protect the confidentiality of the client, tne client's name shall never appear on 
the application. When more than one member of the client's family is involved in 
counseling, all family members shall be assigned the same case number. 

3. The counselor/therapist will receive the financial aid grant on behalf of the client to apply 
to the client's account or to refund to the client if the account has already been paid. 
Clients should request from the therapist a statement showing the amount of financial 
assistance received from the Pastoral Care Committee and should request the therapist 
to contact the Chairperson of Pastoral Care to negotiate an acceptable procedure if any 
problems arise concerning the process. The client, not the Pastoral Care Committee, is 
responsible for all contracts, negotiated fees, and payment of services that are provided. 

4. The deadline for submitting grants is January 15 of the following year.

The North Carolina Annual Conference requires and administers psychological 
assessment and evaluation of all who seek to enter ordained and licensed ministry in our 
Conference. The Committee on Psychological Testing and Background Checks is responsible 
for this area. The current members are: Irish Hicks, Merritt Jones, Larry Robinson, Branson 
Sheets and Peg Witt. 

Psychological testing serves two purposes. 1.) It offers the individual information, 
feedback and guidance toward psychological health and wholeness. 2.) It provides the Board 
of Ordained Ministry assistance in the discernment process about candidates. However, 
Psychological Testing is onf.if one part of the evaluation process. All potential candidates 
under The 1996 Discipline are required to be tested -- whether they are seeking to become 

2.2.1 Legislation 

a Deacon, Elder or Local Pastor. Those under The 1 992 Discipline (or prior Disciplines) are 
required to have the testing as they seek ordination as a Deacon and Prooationary Member of 
the Conference. Probationary members of other annual conferences seeking to transfer into 
this conference must release information on their testing to the Transfer Committee of this 

The reauired tests are: Myers/Briggs Type Indication (Personality), Minnesota Multiphasic 
Personality Inventory (Pathology), Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (Personality), bixteen 
Personality Factor Questionnaire (back-up to A\MP1), Incomplete Sentence Blank, Personal 
Data Inventory and the Enneagram. 

The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory will be given at Candidacy replacing the MMPI. The 
MMPI along with the Enneagram will be given at Probationary Membership for those tested at 

The cost of testing is borne by the Board of Ordained Ministry for those persons within 
the North Carolina Annual Conference. Persons transferring into our conference do not incur 
the cost of testing if they are tested at the time our candidates are group tested. 

Testing services are provided by Dr. Gary Brown, a retired Elder from the Western North 
Carolina Annual Conference whose doctorate is in counseling. We thank Dr. Brown for his 
faithful and effective work with out committee and our board. 

The Oxford Document Company of Minnesota was hired and is providing us with 
background checks. The SBI provides us with a criminal check. The committee asks your 
prayers as we seek to continue being faithful stewards of the work assigned to us. 

Larry Robinson, Chairperson 

The 1996 Book of Discipline, 11317 - Probationary Service of Commissioning Ministers 
and 11417.3 in the 1992 Book of Discipline states: 

"Each probationary member shall have an elder in full connection assigned 
by the Board of Ordained Ministry as counselor during the period of probation. " 

The North Carolina Conference Residency in Ordained Ministry program meets this 
requirement through the cluster group model. Probationers meet in small groups throughout 
the probationary period. Cluster leaders are elders who are not members of the Board of 
Ordained Ministry. Every effort is made to keep each participant in the same cluster, and with 
the same leader, for the duration of the probationary experience. This arrangement provides 
a particularly important collegiality and support for the probationers. 

In October 1999, the committee sponsored a pre-probationary seminar for candidates 
preparing for probationary membership. Representatives from the Board of Ordained Ministry's 
interview committees presented overviews of the interview process. 

Each year, Phase I Probationers, those in their first year of probationary relationship ( '92 
Discipline), meet for an overnight retreat. A resource person, selected by the committee, 
leads the group in exploring issues such as call to ministry, spiritual formation, and practical 
concerns of pastoral leadership in the local church. 

Phase li members are those in the second year of probationary membership with the 
Annual Conference ( '92 Discipline). They work in their cluster gatherings to prepare for full 
conference membership and ordination as elders. A retreat is held at Ijuke Divinity School 
each fall to assist this group in their preparation. 

Phases 111 & IV are designed to help Probationers who must reappear before the Board 
for Elders' Orders and full conference membership. 

Within the RIOM program for the year 1999, a new tracking process has been approved 
by the Board of Ordained Ministry known as Phases A,B,C and D — created tor the 
Probationary members seeking to become Deacons and Elders in Full Connection under The 
1996 Book of Discipline which requires a three-year probationary period. 

The new probationary period, approved by the 1996 General Conference outlined in The 
Discipline, 11315, comes following the completion of one's educational requirements and prior 
to ordination. This period will be a minimum of three (3) years and a maximum of six (6) years. 
During Annual Conference, the Bishop commissions persons being recommended for the 
probationary period by the Board of Ordained Ministry and the Clergy Session, inaugurates the 
probationary period and brings the commissioned probationer into the clergy covenant and 
into the new Residency in Ordained Ministry process of Phases A,B,C and D. 

Those commissioned on track to Deacons or Elders in Full Connection must serve full- 
time under episcopal appointment for three (3) full annual conference years, following 
completion of their educational requirements. Those commissioned will be appointed to their 
appropriate ministries during the probationary period as well as required to participate in the 
RlOMprocess of Phases A,B,C and D. 

The number of years a probationary member spends in either Phases 1,11,111 and IV or 
Phases A,B,C and D becomes CRUCIAL when a probationary member seeking full connection 
fails satisfactorily to complete the requirements of The Book of Discipline and the Board of 
Ordained Ministry. {Eight (8) year time-line for persons entering probationary membership 
under The 1992 Book of Discipline or six (6) year time-line for persons entering under The 

Legislation 222 

1996 Book of Discipline}. 

During the prooationary period, a probationer under The 1992 Book of Discipline can 
complete his/her requirements for Elder s Orders within two (2) years by accepting a full time 
appointment and participating in Phases I and 11 of the RIOM process. 

During the probationary period, a probationer under The 1996 Book of Discipline can 
complete his/her requirements for Deacon/or Elder in Full Connection within three (3) years 
by accepting a full time appointment and participating in Phases A,B and C of the RIOM 

grocess. During the RIOM process, certain probationary members may be required by the 
oard of Ordained Ministry to spend a nadditiqna l year or more in Phases III and iV (under The 
1992 Discipline) OR Phase D (under The 1996 Discipline). Continuance in Phases 111 and IV 
or Phase D does not mean that the probationer has failed or that he/she does not have the 
gifts and grace for Ordained Ministry. It is better understood as an opportunity for the 
probationer to irnprove in some unfinished requirements recommended by the Board. The 
purpose of the RIOM committee is to surround each probationary member with others in one 
of tne phase groups. These phase groups are invited to face with their cluster leaders, (elders 
who are not members of the Board), the possibilities and challenges of ordained ministry and 
his/her growth in that ministry for which ne/she has been called. 

The Residency in Ordained Ministry Committee is committed to helping candidates for 
Ordained Ministry in every way possible. 

Richard O. Greenway, Chairperson 

The 1 999 Annual Conference adopted a policy on professional sexual misconduct for the 
Morth Carolina Conference and asked the Board of Ordained Ministry to establish a sub- 
committee to oversee implementation of the policy. The committee has been organized with 
the following members: Susan Allred, Charles Astrike, Doris Fox, Tom Holtsclaw, and Sallie 

During the first year of responsibility, the committee has continued the training of sexual 
ethics support teams, persons available if the bishop wishes to deploy them to support persons 
who bring a complaint of sexual misconduct, to support persons against whom such 
complaints are made, and to support congregations which might be impacted by such 
circumstances. The careful training, coordinated oy Ms. Terri Allred of the Durnam Rape Crisis 
Center, has prepared nine persons to serve as support team members. 

The Board of Ordained Ministry has asked Bishop Edwards to appoint The Reverend Mary 
Jane Wilson-Parsons to a less-than-full-time extension ministry as Coordinator of the Sexual 
Ethics Support Teams. Ms. Wilson-Parsons will: 1) Design and implement training for SEST; 
2) Make recommendations to and serve on the subcommittee of the Board of Ordained 
Ministry as a consultant and advisor to policy decisions; 3) Coordinate each SEST response, 
providing supervision to team members as needed; 4) Be available to consult with the bishop 
or members of the Cabinet regarding any instance of alleged clergy misconduct; 5) Provide 
outreach and education to members of the conference regarding the Sexual Ethics Policy and 
the role of the response team; 6) Be responsible for staffing the toll-free Clergy Ethics Hotline. 
This ministry will beqin July 1 , 2000, and will be funded by the Board of Ordained Ministry. 

Moral responsibility underlines the importance of our attention to this area of our life 
toqether. The sub-committee invites you to review the Sexual Ethics Policy (pgs. 248-250 of 
The Journal 1999). Awareness of and fulfillment of that policy will strengthen our covenant 
and will offer new avenues for grace in our lives.

IX Recommendations for additional service credit:The Board of Pensions granted Jerry T. 
Smith pension for 1963-1964 at its meeting on November 11, 1999. 

Report B - Recommendations for the Pension Program 

I. Past Service Liability 

A. Past service will continue to be paid on the defined benefit concept (per service year 
rate) for all service rendered to the North Carolina Conference through December 
31, 1 98 1 . This plan will continue until all pastors with past service benefits and their 
surviving spouses are deceased. 

B. Goal of defined benefits (per service year rate) has been defined in the Book of 
Discipline for many years as 1% of the Conference Average Compensation. The 
2001 CAC for the North Carolina Conference is $45,428. 

C. The current rate is $404 per service year. Participation in the new Ministerial 
Pension Plan requires that an Annual Conference increase its past service rate as 
the Conference Average Compensation increases, to at least (J.9% of the CAC to 
continue to participate fully in the new pension program. We propose that the past 
service rate beginning January 1, 2001 be increased to $424 per service year, and 
that further increases will be presented to the Annual Conferences of the future as 
the Conference Average Compensation increases. This increase creates an 
unfunded liability of $27,935,228. 

D. To increase any past service rate will always involve accepting an unfunded liability 
that must be satisfied by either a single cash payment, a series of planned 
payments, or a combination of both. 

E. The Annual Past Service Deposit for 2001 required by the General Board of Pension 
and Health Benefits is $2,556,098 (Due Date December 31, 2001). The amount 
needed in the 2002 budget to fund our total liability by the year 2021 is 
$2,300,000. Additionally, for other benefit plans; such as, health and life insurance, 
pension grants, administration, etc., the 2002 budget request is $1,386,000. 

II. Ministerial Pension Plan (MPP) 

Guidelines for the Ministerial Pension Plan and the Comprehensive Protection Plan are 
contained in the 1983 and 1984 Journals of the North Carolina Conference. Thus we 
call to your attention only those guidelines that are relevant to these programs. 

A. Service on and after January 1, 1982 will be funded on a new concept, called a 
defined contribution plan. This plan is basically deferred salary, and creates no 
unfunded liability because it builds an account of funds for a specific minister as 
his/her salary is paid. 

B. Funding is based on a percentage of Plan Compensation. Plan Compensation is 
calculated as follows: 

Take Cash Income (salary ONLY) e.g $30,000.00 

Add 25% of Cash Income or Housing Allowance 7,500.00 

Plan Compensation will be $37,500.00 

1 . No travel or utility funding is ever used in Plan Compensation calculations 
since these are considered by the General Board of Pension and Health 
Benefits to be items of local expense. 

2. Clergy couples housing (Effective January 1, 1988): 

a. when only one of the spouses is furnished a parsonage, the one 
furnished the parsonage includes the housing allowance. 

b. When one spouse is furnished the parsonage and the other a cash 
allowance, the one furnished the parsonage will use the 25% housing 
allowance, and the other will report the actual cash housing paid. 

c. When two parsonages are furnished and both are used, each spouse 

Legislation 226 

claims a housing allowance, 
d. When neither is furnished a parsonage, the actual cash housing 
allowance may be counted by the person/or persons receiving the 

3. In accordance with the Plan Document, the housing allowance for those 
furnished housing is 25% times the cash salary. 

4. Those furnished a cash housing allowance will report the actual amount in 
accordance with the Plan Document. (Effective January 1, 1988) 

C. The Ministerial Pension Plan contribution from the local church is to be paid 
monthly by the Church or Charge Treasurer to the General Board of Pension and 
Health Benefits. (Effective January 1, 1990) 

D. These contributions are placed in the individual minister's Church Account to be 
available for benefits when the minister becomes eligible fox payment in the retired 

E. Each minister who is eligible for benefits will be required to designate beneficiaries 
for the benefits he/she is qualified to receive. 

F. We recommend 12% as the level of participation in the Ministerial Pension Plan for 
the North Carolina Conference participants. 

G. Unfunded Liability Actuarial Funding Study (Third Year Study, 1990 - 1993) 

1. Interest assumption decreased from 9% to 8%. 

2. Past Service Rate assumption continued at a 5% increase. 

3. No change at the present is required in contribution pattern (new money). 
111. Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP) 

A. This part of the program contains provisions for a death benefit, disability income, 
and funding for the peerage portion of the Ministerial Pension Plan. In addition to 
the provisions of a Jeath benefit for the pastor, there is a death benefit on the life 
of the spouse and dependent children under age 1 8 or who are dependent because 
of disability. The Comprehensive Protection Plan also includes educational benefits 
for the children of a deceased minister. This part of the new plan is only available 
to those ministers covered under the CPP. 

1. Death benefits provide 150% of the Denominational Average Compensation 
(DAC) as the benefit paid on the death of an active minister through age 46, 
dropping on a graduated basis to 30% of the DAC upon retirement at any age. 
(The DAC for 2000 is $40,805.00 and for 2001 is $42,233.00.) 

2. Disability paynrients are based on 40% of the Denominational Average 
Compensation in effect at the time the minister is placed on Disability Leave. 

3. The peerage program provides for a contribution from the Comprehensive 
Protection Plan to the minister's Church Account of a sufficient amount to 
provide the minister with a total contribution for the year based on the 
Denominational Average Compensation at 12% of Plan Compensation based 
on the Denominational Average Compensation for those eligible. 

4. The Comprehensive Protection Plan contribution from the local church is to 
be paid monthly by the Church or Charge Treasurer to the General Board of 
Pension and Health Benefits. (Effective January 1, 1990) 

B. The cost of the Comprehensive Protection Plan is a 4.4% contribution of actual Plan 
Compensation (up to 4.4% of the Denominational Average Compensation). The 
pastor shall be required to pay 1% of Plan Compensation (up to 1% of DAC) and the 
church or charge shall pay 3.4% of Plan Compensation (up to 3.4% of DAC). 
(Effective January 1, 1990) 

[V. Implementation of the Program 

The benefit Program adopted by your Conference Board of Pensions seeks to provide 
a wider range of support for the minister's family through death benefits for every 
member of the family, disability income for the minister in time of great stress, 
educational benefits for children of deceased ministers, minimum annuity benefits for 
surviving spouses, and the build-up of contributions to the Church Account of those 
ministers whose compensation is below the Denominational Average Compensation. 

A. Costs of the Ministerial Pension Plan/Comprehensive Protection Plan will be borne 
by the local charge as an item of ministerial support according to the Plan 
Compensation of the minister and the category of the charge. 

FGLL TIME (Conference MemberA-ocal Pastor) - 12% of Plan Compensation for 

MPP and 3.4% of Plan Compensation for CPP (up to 3.4% of the DAC)

local church treasurer to the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits for 
his/her personal tax-paid or tax-deferred contributions of at least 3%. 
V. Policies Related to Life and Hospital Insurance

Report C - Housinq Exclusion Allowance (For Income Tax Purposes Only) 


WHEREAS, the religious denomination known as The United Methodist Church has and 
functions through ministers of the gospel who are duly ordained or licensed; and 

WHEREAS, the practice of The United Methodist Church is to provide a parsonage or a 
rental allowance as part of the gross compensation for each of its active ordained or licensed 
ministers; and 

WHEREAS, pensions paid to retired ordained or licensed ministers of The United Methodist 
Church are considered as deferred compensation and are paid to said retired ordained or 
licensed ministers in consideration of previous, active service, and disability benefits are 
considered payments in lieu of compensation for active service; and 

WHEREAS, the Internal Revenue Service has recognized that the North Carolina Annual 
Conference is the appropriate organization to designate a housing/rental allowance for retired 
ordained or licensed ministers who are members of this Conference; and 

WHEREAS, the disabled minister has the same legal relationship to an Annual Conference 
as does the retired minister and, thus, this Annual Conference is also the appropriate 
organization to designate a housing/rental allowance for a disabled ordained or licensed 
minister who is a member of this Conference;

Report D - Ministers' Transition Fund Constitution 

I. The Principles of the Fund - The Ministers' Transition Fund of the North Carolina Conference 
of The United Methodist Church (the "Fund") was established effective November 20, 1937, to 
assist the minister to more easily make the transition from the active relationship in which a 
furnished parsonage has usually been provided, to the retired relationship in which the minister 
provides his or her "housing. The Fund is established by apportionments to each local church in the 
Outreach Ministries-Fair Share Apportionments and by assessments to each minister who has 
membership in the Fund. Since all churches contribute to this Fund, it is the desire of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church that all ministers participate in the 
Fund. The Conference does not interpret the churches' support of the Ministers Transition Fund 
as an additional benefit for their ministers, but as a benefit for all ministers of the Conference. 
Therefore, the only funds to which a minister can make personal claim are those which he or she 
contributed to the Fund. 

The Conference vigorously emphasizes that the purpose of this Fund is to assist the minister's 
retirement transition and not to be an emergency fund available for any other purpose. All 
participant elections available shall be irrevocable. The Fund is intended to be a church plan within 
the meaning of section 414(e) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") 
which has not made the election under section 410(d) of the Code and is also intended to meet 
the requirements of a retirement income account under section 403(b)(9) of the Code. The Plan 
shall be interpreted, wherever possible, to comply with the applicable terms of the Code and all 
applicable formal regulations and rulings issuea under the Coae. 

II. The Conference Treasurer -The Treasurer of the North Carolina Conference (the 
"Conference Treasurer") shall serve as Treasurer and custodian of this Fund. He or she snaU 
promote this work, receive funds from pastors and charges, and keep permanent records of 
assessments received and benefits paid. 

III. Eligibility for Membership - Membership in this Fund is not mandatory. Each ministerial 
member of the North Carolina Annual Conference (associate, full, probationary, or full-time local 
pastor) who is serving full time in a charge or as a district superintendent, a Conference ministerial 
staff person, or others who are appointed to serve at a North Carolina Annual Conference 
Institution (Methodist Retirement Home, Inc.; Methodist Home for Children, Inc.; Louisburg 
College; Methodist College; North Carolina Wesleyan College) or other Episcopal appointment of 
the North Carolina Annual Conference shall be eligible to join. 

In order to remain an active, participating member, the ministerial member of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference (associate, full, probationary, or full-time local pastor) must continue 
to serve full time in a charge or other appointment. A full-time local pastor may continue as a 
member of the Fund only during the time he or she is serving under episcopal appointment. 
Students under episcopal appointment who have previously served full time and who intend to 
return to full time service are eligible to continue. Those ministerial members on disability leave, 
leave of absence, or Conference members with less than full time service, may continue to be 
active, participating members by meeting the provisions discussed hereafter. 

Ministerial members who transfer into the Conference or new ministers receiving appoint- 
ments for the first time are eligible to join the Fund in January of the year following the /vinual 

23 1 Legislation 

Conference session in which their credentials were recognized. Ministers in these categories 
applying for membership will be assessed on the basis of their total salary and utility allowances for 
the six months between July 1 and December 31 computed to a twelve month amount. 

Each new member of the Fund shall file an application form. Gpon filing of application for 
membership and paying the recommended assessment for one year, his or her membership 
becomes effective. The deadline for enrollment for all ministers is January 3 1 of each year.

equal to an amount of one percent (1%) of the total salaries and utilities paid to all pastors 
and associates of the Conference based upon the Conference Journal figures for the year 

E receding the year in which the budget request is made to the Annual Conference. This 
udgeted amount will be apportioned to charges on the same basis as all other Conference 
budget items, and this amount shall become part of the Fund. 

B. Minister Contributions - Each minister in a pastoral appointment who participates 
in the Fund shall be assessed and pay into the Fund on an after-tax basis one percent (1%)

no later than January 31 of each year. Assessments received after January 31 will be returned to 
the minister. If he or she has been a member less than ten (10) years, this lack of payment extends 
the period for one additional year before dividends can be received. If the minister has been a 
member over ten (10) years, ne or she will receive no dividends for the year involving lack of 
payment. If any member of the Fund fails to pay his or her required assessment for three 
consecutive years, he or she shall be required to withdraw from membership in the Fund.

shall be divided into equal parts and credited to the accounts of those who have been participating 
members for more than ten years and are not in arrears for the previous year. 

Legislation 232 

A reserve equal to ten percent of the members' payments and dividend fund balances as of 
December 3 1 each year shall be maintained. Unrealized gains on investments shall be reserved and 
are not generally eligible to be distributed as annual dividends. The Hearing Committee may 
supplement the annual dividend from such reserves to maintain the declared dividend in an amount 
consistent with previous year levels when such action is deemed appropriate considering current 
investment returns and current economic conditions. The purpose of maintaining these reserves 
is to insulate the members in any year from market fluctuations and preserve the ability of the fund 
to consistently provide for housing needs in their retirement.

Both the North Carolina Conference Peru Covenant Task Force and the Methodist 
Church of Peru are facing change. After Mark Wethington's leadershipof the Task Force for 
its first ten (10) years of ministry, the Task Force has new leadership. The Methodist Church 
of Peru is seeking a changing direction of her vision for ministry with the closing of the 
seminary in Lima and the commitment to covenant relationships with several other 
Methodist churches and groups. Faithfully living out the mutual relationship upon which the 
covenant was founded continues to be the priority of the Covenant group. 

The Task Force is working to develop more fully mission and ministry opportunities for 
the churches in the NCC. A building team in May, a third Christian education team in 
September, and the presence of a volunteer missionary from North Carolina will give voice 
to the commitment we have made to the Church. The plans for a second youth mission trip 
from NC and the invitation to Peruvian youth are in the process. The vision for pairing and 

237 Legislation 

partnering every congregation in Peru with a congregation in our conference will become 
a reality as the Task Force seeks ways to facilitate such relationships. 

We give thanks to God for the support of so many who have participated in this 
covenant relationship: local churches, pastors, conference staff, and those who use their 
gifts to share in the covenant. The Task Force will be continuing to discern its work, 
mission, and ministry in the coming year. 

Para L Rodenhizer Drake, Chairperson 


The Board of Trustees of the North Carolina Conference has discharged the 
responsibilities as defined by the Book of Discipline, 2513-2517. The Board regards its 
work as that of stewards of the Annual Conference properties. Currently, the Board 
manages the Gnited Methodist Building, the episcopal residence and five other staff 
parsonages. One piece of property, the Raleigh Towne Apartments, adjoining the Gnited 
Methodist Building property, is leased until the year 2014. 

In addition, the Board is responsible for abandoned or closed church properties in 
accordance with the Book of Discipline. There are approximately ten church sites that are 
managed by the Trustees. There nave been no sales of such sites during the past year to 
report to the Annual Conference. 

The Board of Trustees continues to examine the relocation of the Gnited Methodist 
Building. At the last session of the Annual Conference, the Board reported on its 
investigation of the sixteen-acre site in north Raleigh, given by Mr. Olaf Wakefield for a new 
church, as to whether it could be utilized for a new Gnited Methodist Building and a new 
congregation. Because of building restrictions related to the Falls Lake Watershed, the task 
force named by the bishop to work with the Board of Trustees concluded its best usage was 
in accordance with the testamentary language of the bequest as a church site alone. 
Because the proposed Windborne Gnited Methodist Church was ready to proceed with plans 
for locating at this site, the task force and Board of Trustees voted to release this particular 
site from consideration as a Conference headquarters. The Board of Trustees is actively 
seeking other property to be considered for location of a Gnited Methodist Headquarters. 
(See following report.) 

A request was made by the Methodist Home for Children for first consideration of the 
Gnited Methodist Building site should the Conference decide to relocate. A resolution of 
intent was drafted by an attorney and passed by the Board which states that before the 
Glenwood Avenue property is placed on the market or offered for sale to an outside party, 
the Methodist Home for Children will be given a reasonable period to make an offer or 
negotiate with the Board of Trustees for purchase. As a related institution of the Conference 
engaged in significant and worthwhile ministry, the Board would make every effort to ensure 
that the needs of the Methodist Home for Children would be considered in these matters. 

We seek your prayers and input as we pursue the care of Annual Conference assets. 
Our goal is always to be faithful in managing what is entrusted to us for the ministry of Jesus 
Christ in the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

William C. Simpson, Jr., President 


by the NC Conference Board of Trustees 

At the request of the Board of Trustees, Bishop Marion M. Edwards appointed a Task 
Force on the Gnited Methodist Building to consider the advisability of relocating the 
conference headquarters in another suitable site in the Triangle area, possibly also meeting 
strategic needs of the conference in providing a retreat or conference center. The 
members of the Task Force are: Dr. Belton Joyner, Dr. Kermit Braswell, The Reverend 
Hope Morgan Ward, Dr. Steve Compton, Mr. Charles Carpenter, Mr. Jack Reed, A\rs. Pat 
Wiles, Mr. Cashar Evans, Mr. Mack Parker, The Reverend Rodney Hamm, Mr. Robbie 
Lowry, Mr. Joe Stoffregen, Dr. J. Allen Norris and Dr. William C. Simpson. The task force 
met with Bishop Edwards on January 12, 2000 for its organizational meeting. The group 
identified two separate needs that may or may not be served in one location: (1) a 
conference administration center with offices for the Bishop and (2) a retreat and 
conference center with primary emphasis on serving adults. The task force is open to 
suggestions the task force is open to suggestions as the planning process continues.

been unable to arrive at a common mind on the compatibility of Christian teaching with 
the living out of one's homosexual orientation in a sexual relationship. Many consider

WHEREAS the Book of Discipline in the Social Principles of The United 
Methodist Church (H 67g) states that "Gambling is a menace to society, deadly to the 
best interests of moral, social, economic, and spiritual life, and destructive of good 
government. As an act of faith and concern, Christians should abstain from gambling 
and should strive to minister to those victimized by the practice. The Church should

undesirable the resort to commercial gambling, including public lotteries, as a 
recreation, as an escape, or as a means of producing public revenue or funds for 
support of charities or government"; and

The nine-member Committee on Oversigiit, Review and Encouragement combined 
efforts to gather descriptive information about many outreach ministries throughout our 
conference that touch the lives of children and people in need. This information v/as 
compiled into a booklet titled "Beyond the Four Walls" and was distributed at the N.C. 
Annual Conference on June 12,1999. At the same time a ministry fair was presented, 
providing direct contact with leaders of these ministries who were able to describe first-hand 
what is involved and how a church might begin a similar ministry. 

Following the flooding caused by Hurricane Floyd, the Disaster Response Children's 
Ministry Team members, led by Judy Jolly, worked together to minister to the needs of 
children in emergency shelters. 

The C.O.R.E. committee has become part of the Children's A\inistry Team and will 
continue to be a resource to churches as they reach out to the young and the poor in their 
own communities and around the globe.

The purpose of the annual conference is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by 
equipping its local churches for ministry and by providing a connection for ministry 
beyond the local church; all to the glory of God. (The Book of Discipline, 160 1 ) 

The Conference Council on A\inistries embraces the threefold mission of the annual 
conference: 1) to make disciples, 2) to equip local churches for ministry, and 3) to provide 
a connection for ministry. We give thanks to God for all that God is doinq through us and 
among us. We rejoice that God is using our shared ministry as a channelof blessing. "We 

Reports 242 

are God's servants, working together " (1 Corinthians 3:9) It is good to be in ministry together 
in these days. 

We give thanks for the connectional nature of the Gnited Methodist Church. In this 
past year, we have experienced the strength of connection. We rejoice in the generous 
support of the Jurisdictional and General Agencies, particularly in the areas of Restorative 
Justice Ministries, Hispanic Ministries, Global Ministries, Shalom Ministries, Higher 
Education, and Discipleship Ministries. We give thanks for collaborative efforts with the 
Western NC Annual Conference, especially in the areas of the Bishops' Initiative on Children 
and Poverty, Restorative Justice Ministries, campus ministries, communications, and 
Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries. With all United Methodists, we celebrate "a common 
purpose" (I Corinthians 3:8). 

At the February 18, 1999, meeting of the Conference Council on Ministries, great 
concern was expressed for clear and strong Gnited Methodist voice in opposition to the 
lottery in Morth Carolina. A motion was made and passed overwhelmingly that the CCOM 
ask the Annual Conference to approve $10,000 to be used for opposition to the lottery and 
that these funds be channeled triromh the North Carolina Council of Churches for this 
purpose only. It is the belief of the CCOM that our strongest avenue for opposition to the 
lottery is an ecumenical effort in an organization in which we have voice and vote. This 
matter will require vote of the Annual Conference. 

The report of the 22 committees, councils, and commissions of the Conference 
Council describe the breadth and depth of our shared ministry. 

Together we give thanks for effective leadership, loving partnership, and a joyful sense 
of accomplishment, acknowledging "God who gives the growth " (1 Corinthians 3:6). 

Hope Morgan Ward, txecutive Director, Conference Council on Ministries 


The spring meeting of the commission was held on Saturday, April 10, 1999 at 
Tabernacle Gnited Methodist Church in Robbins, NC. We were given a gracious welcome 
for the Historical Society meeting. A table was laden with historical materials for our 
observation. TTie presenters gave an interesting and moving account of past events in the 
life of the church and the community. After a delightful lunch in the church fellowship hall, 
we proceeded with the business of the commission. 

The history of the Robbins Tabernacle Gnited Methodist Church is both long and 
colorful. Having been organized in 1840 approximately two miles west of its present site in 
the town of Robbins (which was then known as Hemp), it was officially moved to Robbins 
in 1864. Mrs. Molsey Stutts gave a tract of land on the east side of highway #705 for the 

From 1892 until 1941 Tabernacle was placed on what was then known as "The Hemp 
Circuit," which included Tabernacle, Smyrna, Pleasant Hill, Bascoms Chapel and Mt. Carmel 
Churches. In 1941 Tabernacle became a station church. It was in this year that the present 
brick building was built... 

Two years later (1943) the town of Hemp changed its name to Robbins. (Saddlebags, 
Spring 1999, A. V. Davis, Editor) 

The annual meeting of the S. E. J. Historical Society was hosted by the Mississippi 
Conference with the theme: "Mississippi Methodism - 200 Years of Heritage and Hope". We 

fathered at Jefferson Street Gnited Methodist Church in Natchez, Mississippi on July 6-9, 
999. We heard about the life and ministry of the Rev. Tobias Gibson (1771-1804) early 
circuit rider to the Mississippi Territory, "The Development of Black Methodist Churches in 
Mississippi", a video "Gathering at the River: Camp Meeting in South Mississippi", 
presentation on the work of Methodists in spreading the gospel and the care and 

Preservation of the graves of Methodist Preachers, "Natchez In Historic Photographs" at the 
resbyterian Church, Stratton Chapel, and a session on "Methodist Chaplains in the Civil 
War". We had a grand day of touring historic churches and communities along the Natchez 
Trace, visiting "The Millennium Monument World Peace Bell, The World's largest free- 
swinging Bell, dedicated to International themes of Freedom and Peace", docked on the 
bank of the Mississippi River on its journey north to Newport, Kentucky. A Banquet at 
Jefferson Street G. M. C. followed with an Original Musical/Drama, "Roots by the River" 
(written and composed especially for the Mississippi Methodist Bicentennial). We concluded 
the business of the Society on f^riday and shared in worship with Holy Communion. The 
Rev. Curtis Moffat, Pastor, Jefferson Street G. M. C. was the celebrant. The flight out over 
the Mississippi River and the rich farmland below was spectacular. Everyone is encouraged 
to participate in the S. E. J. Historical Society meetings and other events of our Methodist 
Heritage. Mrs. Pat Bailey, John Mitchell and 1 were thrilled to experience Mississippi 

The fall meeting of the commission was conducted on Saturday, October 2, 1999 at 
the Phillip's Chapel (Jnited Methodist Church near Graham, NC. The Historical Society met 

243 Reports 

in the morninq with an outstandinq presentation of the church's history by the local 
historians. Dr. Donald Haynnan of Chapel Hill, NC was elected as vice-president and tAis. 
Mildred Swain of Plymouth, NC was elected as secretary-treasurer. After a delicious lunch 
by the women of the church the business of the commission began. 

Several accounts of the beginnings of Phillip's Chapel G. M. C. are related in the history 
of the church. Some think it started with the Salem Meeting House, now known as Salem 
G. M. C, around 1770. In those early years the meeting house was shared with other 
denominations as a place of worship. Some think that a circuit rider by the name of Phillips 
established a arbor preaching mission, later becoming an established congregation. Since 
Phillip's Chapel was a Metnodist Episcopal Church, South, and Salem a Methodist 
Protestant Church, it is assumed that the beginnings of Phillip's Chapel would be prior to 
1830 and possible before 1822, when the Presbyterians left Salem. (Saddlebags, Fall 1999, 
Ann Veazey Davis, Editor) 

The Commission offers training sessions for historians at the District training events 
for the local churches, annual grants to support two historic churches in our Conference, 
and grave markers for deceased ministers. The Commission also encourages membership 
in the Conference Historical Society. The Commission appreciates the work of Rev. Frank 
Grill, our Conference Historian. We are thankful to the Rev. and Mrs. Maness Mitchell and 
John Mitchell for representing the NC Conference at the annual meeting of the Historical 
Society of the G. M. C. in Little Rock, Arkansas, Sept. 1998, and at St. Paul, Minnesota, 
June 1999. The Commission participates in the training events of the Jurisdiction for local 
churches, societies and commissions.

The Commission on Christian Gnity and Interreligious Concerns seeks to give witness 
to the unity of the church which is a gift of the Holy Spirit. This year our priorities have 
taken shape in the following areas: 1) Pan-Methodist conversation, at which we heard from 
General Commission Associate Director Ann Marshall, involving persons from the AME, 
AMEZ, and CME traditions, members of this commission, and members of the 
Commission on Religion and Race; 2) Episcopal-Gnited Methodist statewide dialogue, 
which met in May to explore the history of racism within the two denominations; 3) support 
of the flood relief efforts in our local communities. 

We continue to look for ways to strengthen the ties within the greater Wesleyan 
family, especially through Pan-Methodist conversations, and to learn more about the 
current efforts in Christian Gnity by attending national workshops and seminars. 

Each year we also present an Award for efforts in Christian Gnity, encouraging local 
churches, groups, and individuals to bear witness to the unity in Christ that is the vision 
of the Church. 

Claire Clyburn, Chairperson. 


This year much of the time of the commission on Church and Society has been spent 
on the issue of the economic boycott of Mount Olive Pickle Company. This is a issue that 
affects the farm workers, the farmers, and the people who live in Mount Olive, and those 
who work for Mount Olive Pickle Company. The commission chose to put together a task 
force within the commission to organize a mediating conference that will bring together all 
the stakeholders-farm workers, farmers, canners of pickles, and government. William L 
Bingham, a former chair of this commission and currently serving as the justice coordinator, 
has provided leadership in putting together conference. The mediating conference brought 
together representatives of our commission, the North Carolina Council of Churches, the 
Roman Catholic Church, the Presbyterian Church and the Episcopal Church on Saturday, 
April 29'^ 2000, at St Luke's Gnited Methodist Church in Goldsboro. 

The commission has discussed needs left in the wake of Hurricane Royd. How can 
the church help lift up a region that is economically fragile and dependant on farm income? 

Reports 244 

A second issue is the violence in our society, including the shootings in public places. 
TTiere is plenty of work to be done in the area of social justice. 

We nave taken a look at ourselves as a commission. We need a commission that is 
representative of each region of the conference and diverse with respect age, gender, 
race/ethnic background, lay, and clergy. Members need to be interested, committed, and 
willing to participate. A new configuration should include guidelines in regard to faithful 

With joy and regret I submit this, my last report, as chairperson of this commission. 
It has been a wonderful five years. 1 would like to thank Jimmy Cummings, the staff, and 
all the hard working members of the commission. Together, we can make a difference in 
social justice. Henry Jarrett, Chairperson 


Your Annual Conference is on the Internet. Take a look at all the ministries and 
information that are included on our web site at WWW.NCCGMC.ORG. Your 
Communications Commission is pleased to make this service available. If your pastor does 
not have a conference email address urge him or her to do so today. Web space is 
available for local churches to have a presence on the Internet, at no cost. 

We published and distributed over 45,000 copies of the Mission and Service 
Commitments budget paper in 1999. This resource is used by local churches and 
commissions to interpret the mission and ministry of our conference and church. This 
paper graphically communicates the outreach ministry of our conference using pictures 
and "testimonials". 

One major project undertaken this year was TV advertising in the Wilmington area. 
The Wilmington District received this new form of church "advertising" with enthusiasm. 
Using funds from the general church and conference, TV "spots" were bought over a four 
week period on local cable providers. These spots were produced by GMCOM, the 
churches communications agency. The advertisements highlighted the outreach of our 
church. Churches in Wilmington and surrounding areas were encouraged to interface with 
these spots so that the unchurched would feel a relationship between the TV and the local 
church. We will wait and see if General Conference funds tnis kind of outreach across the 

Bill Norton, LeeAnne Thornton and Laura Bailey continue to meet the 
communication needs of our conference. Bill is associate director for communications, 
LeeAnne is administrative assistant and Laura is the director of the Media Center. If you 
church does not use the Media Center you are missing out on a wonderful resource. It is 
filled with video, tapes and other curriculum. You may access Media Center information 
on the web, NCCGMCORG, or you may call Laura at 1-800-843-4433. 

Brownbags, with paper forms, are now a thing of the past! Forms for charge 
conferences and for Tables 1 and II will be on the Web in Conference year 2000-2001. Data 
will be downloaded in a central conference data base.

Our Committee continues to help our Annual Conference faithfully respond in the 
challenging arena of criminal justice. We are attempting to follow in the footsteps of our 
leaders, John & Charles Wesley, who ministered at Newgate Prison. We encourage all 
churches to adopt the following four initiatives: 
1 . To be a praying church - to choose an institution near by and pray regularly for the 

?rison staff, the inmates, the victims, and the families involved, 
o be a receivinq church - to welcome and assist released inmates and their families. 

3. To be a Disciple Bible Study leading church - to find and enable volunteers to lead the 
study in a local institution. 

4. To be a funding church - to provide monies to the Chaplain's office for various needed 
programs in the institution. 

We continue to support the followinq ministries: 

• Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries - DBOM has grown from being in 17 units to being 
in 35 units during 1999-2000. 

• A\ATCH (Mothers And Their Children) program at NC Correctional Institute for Women 
in Raleiqn, a home-like settinq for incarcerated mothers and their children.. 

• Yokefellow Ministries - trained volunteers that share the Good News of Jesus weekly 
in the institutions. 

• Anqel Tree Ministries - Project by Prison Fellowship to provide Christmas Gifts for 
children of incarcerated persons. 

245 Reports 

• Epiphany Ministries - A weekend that involves a team of Christian adults who work 

together to show the love of God to the residents of the youth institutes. 

Our Committee offers a yearly updated booklet called, "Prison Ministry Opportunities" 

which is available through the Conference Office, your District Superintendent, or from a 

CJAMM member. This booklet provides an excellent resource for those who are seeking to 

increase their personal or congregational involvement in this ministry. Our committee will 

continue to be present at Annual Conference where additional information may be obtained. 

With the many prayers and wonderful prison volunteers across our Conference, there 

is a tremendous mission being carried out. As the number of incarcerated persons 

continues to increase in our state, the need for local church participation grows. Jesus 

reminded his disciples,"l was in prison and you visited me. The CJAMM Committee 

encourages every church to support prison ministries by visiting and praying with and for 

our brothers ana sisters there and by praying with and for them.

Hurricane Floyd washed across North Carolina on September 16, 2000. While the 
hurricane was category II strength, the amount of rain associated with the storm, 
combined with the rains from Hurricane Dennis a few weeks earlier, was enough to cause 
unprecedented amounts of flooding across the eastern half of North Carolina. A tropical 
depression and Hurricane Irene followed Floyd. The ultimate effect was extensive and 
prolonged flooding that resulted in 66 of our 100 counties being declared Federal Disaster 
areas. In some neighborhoods, the water completely covered homes remained there for 
up to two weeks. People were rescued by boat from rooftops. Hundreds of roads were 
impassable including 1-40, the major east-west artery. Electrical service was out in most 
areas, sewer systems overflowed, livestock drowned by the thousands, and 51 people lost 
their lives. 

At the peak of the incident, 235 shelters were open with a population of almost 
50,000. As of February 29'^ FEMA teleregistrations had reached 87,000 and calls were 
still coming in 100 a day. Over 7,000 homes received major damage or were destroyed 
completely. State figures indicate that 45 counties have agricultural losses estimated at 
$812,629,064. 7,212 people continue to live in trailers and mobile homes supplied by 
FEMA. There have been 883 IFGP grants approved at the max of $13,600. Mitigation 
counselors have interviewed over 1 1 ,000 applicants. To sum it up, this is the worst natural 
disaster to hit North Carolina. 

From the very beginning, the United Methodist Church has been involved. Churches 
were used as temporary shelters and distribution centers for food and water for weeks 
following the floods. Avery conservative estimate (some documented numbers and some 
guesses) of the number of volunteers is somewhere over 9,000 giving over 90,000 hours 
of their time. Volunteers have come from 27 different states and 2 foreign countries. In 
their weekly updates, FEMA recognizes the United Methodist Church as the clearinghouse 
for volunteers. 

Our central warehouse in Goldsboro has received over 1/4 million dollars in donated 
drywall as well as electrical supplies and fixtures, paint, caulking, cabinetry, food, clothing 
and water. 

The Disaster Recovery Ministries employs 23 full-time people serving in four Regional 
Recovery Centers and a Central Communications Center. In aadition to our four Regional 
Recovery Centers, we are working with 15 independent and Interfaith organizations 
throughout eastern North Carolina. 

Each Regional office has a Director who oversees the total operation of the center 
including financial matters, volunteers placement and housing, ana advises on the cases 
to be worked on. Casework Supervisors work in each region with volunteers who do one- 
on-one assessments with the families. Their information is used in conjunction with the 
Construction Supervisors evaluation of the home and estimated repair cost. Together, the 
three decide on how best to assist a family in their recovery efforts. As volunteer teams 
are assigned to a region, the Director and Construction Supervisor orient and guide the 
team through their work. 

Pastoral Care is included in the services offered by the Disaster Recovery Ministries. 
Private, small group, and retreat settings are offered to help Clergy deal with the added 
stress of being in disaster situations and to affirm the importance of their role in the 
recovery of the community. 

As an indication of the generosity of the conference, to date, February 16, 2000, 
$1,350,940 was donated to Disaster Recovery. (This number does not include all the 
money individuals have spent on our behalf or given directly to victims.) 

it is our hope to be able to assist in the rebuilding of at least 1 ,000 homes in the next 

Reports 246 

three years. 

What we need in order to accomplish this is simple - we need volunteers! We need 
building materials and we need your support and your prayers. 

Barbara Tripp, Director 


Eastern North Carolina was hit by three hurricanes in the 1999 hurricane season. First, 
Hurricane Dennis came in early September as a Category 2 and soaked the ground. Less 
than two weeks later, along came Floyd, projected to be a Category 4 Hurricane, but a 3 
when it came ashore. The third assault was from Irene, a Category 2, "battering us with more 
rain. All three hurricanes came ashore in the Cape Fear region near Wilmington and then 
passed north along the eastern North Carolina region east of Interstate 95. Floyd dumped 
more than 20 inches of rain in the area, causing flooding not seen in the area for 500 years. 
Floyd became better known as Flood f^loyd to area residents. Three hurricanes in the span 
of six weeks challenged the Disaster Response Committee in unprecedented ways. 

Conference planning after Hurricane Fran in 1996 was beneficial in the emergency 
phases after these fierce storms, but nothing had prepared us for dealing with the rloyd 
Flood. As one of our Disaster Response Committee members said, "everything we do is 
carved in mud." Six of the twelve districts in the NC Conference were severely affected by 
the storms. 

Immediately, the Bishop and members of the Disaster Recovery staff toured the 
affected areas and prepared an initial grant of funds to get each district started in their 
response. The Disaster Response Committee Staff also mobilized a response all across the 
Conference. Food, water, clothing, flood buckets, and other supplies flowed in from across 
the Conference to assist in the emergency and relief phase of the disaster. Volunteers came 
in to help with the workload of cleaning out flooded homes and churches. Our sister 
Conference, Western NC Conference, has been very generous in their initial response, as 
well as in their ongoing support. GMCOR sent in advisors and consultants from other 
flooded areas to assist us in response. A Bishops Appeal across the United Methodist 
Church was organized to provide financial support. Additionally, the Duke Endowment has 
responded generously to the need. We are very grateful for the support all these 
organizations, and for the response of the local churches in the North Carolina Conference 
have provided to assist our response. 

Here are some statistics to help frame the disaster in terms most people can 
understand. Over 86,000 registrations for FEMA support, and 19,000 requests for loans 
from the Small Business Administration have been initiated. More than 7,000 homes have 
been destroyed or severely damaged. Currently there are over 2,000 travel trailers providing 
temporary housing for over 7,500 people. The State has estimated that as many as 1 1 ,000 
homes may be eligible for the government buyout program, designed to remove homes in 
the flood plains from harm's way. Overall damage estimates are expected to exceed $6 
Billion witn an additional $800 A^IIion in agricultural losses. 

The North Carolina Conference has responded magnificently to the challenge. Nearly 
$1.5 million in cash gifts and over $250 thousand in gifts in kind have been received as of 
this writing. Volunteers have given over 100,000 hours. They have come from more than 
twenty-six different states. An initial goal has been set to rebuild over 600 homes. Four 
Regional Centers for the Recovery Effort have been established in Tarboro, Kinston, 
Greenville and Kenansville, as well as working relationships with eleven Local Recovery 
Centers. Some 26 staff members have been hired to direct the recovery efforts out of these 
centers. A central warehouse for supplies has been established in Goldsboro to serve the 
regional centers. Volunteer teams from nearly every state east of the Mississippi River with 
another 3,000 volunteers are scheduled to come in and help through August 2000. More 
are calling in with offers to come and help every day. Each of the four Regional Centers has 
resources to house and otherwise accommodate the "out of town" long term volunteers, 
and make their stay with us as comfortable and as fruitful as possible. 

Bishop Edwards has said, "Our local United Methodist Churches are binding together 
with local institutions and agencies in their own communities and providing whatever 
assistance they can to help their neighbors. We as a church intend to be here for the 
duration. We're committed to helping through all phases of the recovery." In February 2000 
he formed Disaster Recovery Ministries to lead the churches response in the recovery phase 
and appointed a Board of Directors to oversee that effort. The board of Directors represent 
people with a variety of talents especially suited for this task. The church is committed for 
at least the next three years in the recovery of the Fall Storms of 1999. 

The Disaster Response Committee will continue to work v^th people in all of our 
districts to better prepare them for the next disaster, whether it be a flood, a hurricane, a 
winter snow storm, a tornado, an earthquake, a nuclear power plant event, or any other type 



of disaster that places the people in our area in need of assistance. We are currently getting 
more people trained in Disaster Response, and are preparing a training syllabus to be used 
in each of our districts and churches to better prepare our people for the next event. Jerry 
Jarrell, the past Director of the National Hurricane Center said at the Hurricane 
Preparedness 2000 Lessons Learned Conference at GNC Wilmington, that his forecast for 
2000 was the same as it has been for many years, "Over half of the population will be 
unprepared for the next disaster." It is the goal of the Disaster Response Committee to 
prove this observation wrong in North Carolina. With your help and continued support, we 
will be able to do just that.

The Commission on Education continues to seek innovative ways to equip "people in 
the pews" to be agents of transformation. We understand that many "ministries" 
undertaken are like flowers on a plant. They reflect beauty; serve a purpose; re-seed; and, 
bloom again in another season sometimes even in a different way or place as cross 
pollination or transplanting occurs. As a commission, we seek to be sensitive to the needs 
of persons on the front lines of ministry and creative "user-friendly" ways to ensure nurturing 
ministries continue to grow within and beyond the four walls of the local church mission 
sending station. 

We celebrate emerging ministries such as, 

• "Hand to Hand" -linking churches with area schools; 

• "Disciple Bible Consultants"-reaching smaller membership churches; 

• "Disciple Bible Outreach"~linking Disciple Bible Study graduates with prison 

• "Preschool Director's Retreat/Network"~spiritual life opportunities for weekday 

• ||Mentioning/Churches" -networking resources of neighboring congregations; 

• "Internet Training"-utilizing and developing internet accessible leadership 
development resources 

We appreciate the opportunity to present new resource training models and workshops 
such as, 

• "Faith Quest" — local church leadership team Bible study 

• "Christian Believer" and "Disciple Bible Study" - training events for the 34 week 

• "Destination 2000" — creative overviews of new Sunday morning resources, 
materials for young adults and updated confirmation studies 

We are encouraged by the positive impact of 

• District Directors of Christian Education (utilizing specialized skills of professional 
educators to equip, empower and energize in specialized training opportunities 
local church leadership); 

• Age-level/lnterest area specific retreats/seminars/roundtables (especially for older 
adults, young adults, singles, preschool workers, and youth) 

• Encouraging participation in significant national leadership events to encourage 
thinking beyond ourselves and our four walls 

"Classic Coke" is no longer readily available in green bottles to be redeemed for two 
cents. The content is the same; however, the packaging is now plastic and recyclable 
aluminum. Our challenge for the future includes discovering new models of equipping 
gifted and called persons for ministry through spiritual formation. We have had many 
examples of persons within our NC Conference Christian education and nurture. Persons 
nurtured in the faith through significant developmental stages continue to share the love of 
the Lord with others in transforming ways. Our Christian message has been the same for 
2000 years; however, the packaging has needs to change to reach contemporary persons. 

As we soar into the next quadrennium, we are optimistic, enthusiastic and ready to 
serve in creative ways to ensure all of God's children of any age in our spheres of influence 
will grow in relationship with God and with one another. The two commandments Jesus 
shared in Matthew 22:37-39 still guide our Commission on Education today in the NC 
Conference. Celebrating ministry together, 

Elaine A. Lilliston, Chairperson 


The ELCC Committee remains faithful in its efforts to assist churches and ministries 
spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The awarding of Inclusiveness Grants for some 16 
proposals was a major task for the committee. In all, more than $50,000 was granted 
during 1999 to various ministries. The grant monies assisted w/ith the creation or 
strengthening of a van ministry, a tutoring program for elementary, middle and high 

Reports 248 

schoolchildren, a food bank, Hispanic AMnistries, ministry to special populations, a job 
training program and an adult day care center. 

In keeping with Paragraph 626 of the Book of Discipline (1996), and in an effort to 
fulfill the Annual Conference s Comprehensive Plan of inclusiveness, funds will be made 
available to fund more proposals during the year 2000 in order to:l)Strengthen 
programs/projects developed oy local United Methodist churches with priority given to 
ethnic churches.2)Provide seed money to support mission projects that address social 
problems or concerns as they impact and empower racial/ethnic persons. 3)Provide 
programs/projects for people to work together toward a better understanding of 

We are grateful for the opportunities to share in the expansion of the Reign of God and 
pray that the important work and witness of inclusiveness will continue to be seen and 
supported in any new configuration of the Conference structure. Finally, the ELCC owes a 
debt of gratitude to Dr. Jimmy Cummings and Reverend Carolyri Cummings-Woriax for 
their ongoing wise counsel and advice as well as their unfailing dedication to the 
strengthening of the local church, and ethnic churches in particular, within our Annual 
Conference. To God be the glory! 

Shane Benjamin, Chairperson 


The North Carolina Conference celebrates that we are a growing conference in 
professions of faith, membership, worship attendance, and the spiritual life of the church. 
Across our conference, new churches, historical registry churches and churches whose life 
may best be described as "middle-aged" are rejoicing with spiritual and numerical growth 
in their congregations. The mission of the Commission on Evangelism is to help the 
congregations of the North Carolina Conference equip their people to witness to the saving 
love of Jesus Christ. By equipping the laity and clergy with education and inspiration, we 
lift the cross of Christ and call all people to Him. Scholarships and seed money provide 
support to individuals and districts for training in evangelism, witnessing and outreach. 
Requests for assistance should be directed to tne conference office of Evangelism. 

During the past year the Commission on Evangelism conducted an advertising market 
test September through November 1999. Invitational television spots produced by the 
General Board of Discipleship were broadcast in the Wilmington area (during prime time 
programming. Local churches utilized billboards, targeted mailings and printed material 
that featured the same message as the TV spots. Congregational outreach teams were 
offered training to develop stronger welcoming and assimilation skills. Positive results were 
achieved and future opportunities are being explored. 

The commission cosponsored two workshops under the leadership of the Tom Bandy 
and Bill Easum organization. The first event was hosted by Fuquay Varina United Methodist 
Church, September 10-11, 1999. The second was held March 23, 2000 and hosted by 
Asbury United Methodist Church, Raleigh. In both events, attendees were invited and 
challenged to see the church in a new light and reach out with a fresh vision to the 
communities in which they are located. 

Realizing that the principle weekly worship service is the primary arena in which the 
church touches the greatest number of persons at one time, the commission is offering a 
conference workshop for clergy and lay worship leaders, September 22, 2000 on "Worship 
as Evangelism. " The resource person for the event will be the Rev. Walt Kallestad, Senior 
Minister, Community Church of Joy, Phoenix, Arizona. The event is designed to give 
direction in utilizing the worship service as an evangelistic outreach in traditional and 
contemporary styles. Congregations of all sizes, settings and growth potentials will find 

The commission is exploring what the most effective structure would be to accomplish 
our work as the conference considers its future organizational structure. Effective leadership 
and wise use of resources will guide the commission as the church answers the call of 
Christ into the world of the 21" century. We are reminded of the scripture's counsel in Luke 
12:48, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the 
one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. " The opportunity to 
reach out in the name of Christ grows as we answer the call to "go and make disciples. "

All of God's children need love, support, encouragement and prayer. In response to 
the Bishops' Initiative on Children and Poverty, the NC Conference, the Western NC 
Conference, the Methodist Home for Children, the Children's Home, and Communities in 
Schools have joined in partnership, creating the Hand in Hand Project. Hand in Hand 
connects churches with schools to meet the needs of children and their families and to

support our educators. After two years of meeting and planning, a grant was obtained fronn 
The Duke Endowment in the fall of 1999. The grant runs for three years. Two staff persons 
are working in the Hand in Hand Project - Susan Pennock (primarily in the NC Conference) 
and Sandra Honeycutt (primarily in tne Western NC Conference). Four pilot projects were 
selected for concentration of efforts in 1999-2000: Jones County, Whiteville, Summerfield, 
and Clay County. Other churches are assisted as they contact Susan and Sandra and 
through district training workshops offered in the spring and fall of 2000. 

Sue Ellen Nicholson, Associate Director CCOM 


During the past year, the Commission on Health & Human Services has worked 
closely witn our agencies committed to ministering to the needs of the people. Jesus 
emphasized the role of compassion in a holistic ministry of healing as he brought sight to 
the blind, the lame walk, and healed lepers of their dread disease. Jesus demonstrated that 
God's purpose for humanity live in community with each other. 

In the days of Jesus, sickness and disease were believed to be divine punishment for 
sin. Consequently the afflicted were ostracized and isolated from not only their village and 
families, but also from synagogue worship. By reaching out to such individuals Jesus 
rejected barriers and made it clear that God's healing grace was universal, intended for all. 

It is this vision of our Lord that provides the rationale and passion for the healing 
ministries of our conference. The Journa l includes the detailed reports of the institutions 
with whom the Commission works. It is sufficient to report how much we appreciate the 
leadership of those leading The Methodist Retirement Home Inc; The Methodist Home for 
Children; The Parish Nurse Ministries; Duke Medical Center Chaplaincy; Golden Cross 
Ministries and Asbury Homes. 

The commission is encouraged by the progress of each institution, despite many 
financial and administrative challenges. We are grateful to Dr. Reginald Ponder, Methodist 
Retirement Home Inc, and wish him well as he retires from this leadership position. We are 
grateful to the Rev. Mike Safley and Methodist Home for Children and the exciting vision for 
ministry the board of trustees is implementing. 

The Parish Nurse Ministries are developing within local churches while the Duke 
Medical Center Chaplaincy continues working closely with AIDS patients and families. The 
Golden Cross Ministries continues to provide resources for families with medical expenses. 
Asbury Homes continues its health care ministries with the mentally handicapped. 

The commission has met with the Task Force on Conference Structure. The 
commission is receptive to the vision for more effectively structure for carrying out ministry. 
The commission has cooperated with health care teams responding to the crisis in eastern 
North Carolina as a result of Hurricane Royd. We continue to encourage The United 
Methodist Church to observe Disability Awareness Sunday. It is important for congregations 
to be aware of ways inadequate facilities silently exclude disabled persons. 

It has been a privilege to serve as chair of the commission. 

Brian A. Gentle, Chairperson 
The Asbury Homes, Inc. 

The year 1999 has been an exciting time of ministry, planning and visioning for the 
future. The group home ministry in Tabor City, known as Cioremont, continues to be an 
enriching family experience for the five (5) adults who live here. This ministry involves not 
only the basic support to independence for activities of daily living but also involves training 
and supervision in job skills and deepening enrichment in their own faith development. The 
uniqueness of Asbury Homes at Goremont includes a basic mission of care for the total 
person loved by God! 

The Columbus County Department of Mental Health continues to confirm 
independently this unique ministry as a vital part of the Health Care Delivery System in the 
County. The North Carolina Conference mission is alive and well, with a responsible financial 
operation. Contributions have been on the increase from Board members, congregations 
and individuals of the Annual Conference, providing extra quality to the program. St. Paul's 
United Methodist Church, Tabor City, continues to provide an active, inclusive ministry 
through special church school classes, volunteers to individuals, sponsors of special events 
at Goremont and an invitation to have Goremont residents in all church programs. We are 
grateful for this wonderful relationship. 

Planning for the changing needs has been driven in this past year by the decision of 
the property owners to sell the land on which Goremont is locatea to a local commercial 
shopping center. It has forced Asbury Homes to search for extra funding for property 
purchase by early April 2000. Asbury Homes is working on an alternative location in Tabor 
City which will allow a more secure, uninterrupted ministry of care. A fuller report of this 
development will be forthcoming. Our primary mission is to provide a ministry of caring, 
uninterrupted and not driven by dollar. 

Reports 250 

Visioning for the future has taken the first step towards having a group home in every 
district by a joint effort with SEMAR and SEJNAM to establish a new group home in 
Robeson County. Local and Rockingham District support for the project has been exciting. 
Asbury Homes is your ministry with physically and mentally disabled adults. The support of 
this ministry by your prayers, your gift of time, and many gifts of money are encouraging. 
Asbury Homes receives your support with deep thanksgiving to our Lord and Savior, Jesus 

Thanks for caring in such a meaningful way. 

Philip S. Brown, President - Board of Trustees 
Golden Cross 

The Golden Cross ministry reaches out in love to the laity in our Conference who 
experience difficulty with excessive medical expenses. Through Golden Cross United 
Methodists care for members of our local church families in times of emotional stress and 
financial need. 

During 1999 we assisted 22 families from 7 of 12 districts in our Conference. In 1999 
we had budgeted $28,359.00 but due to a carry over of unused 1998 funds, we were able 
to help those 22 families at the level of $30,185.69. Our budget for the year 2000 is 
$27,752.00. Please remember that Golden Cross is a special ministry to those in need due 
to medical expenses. Encourage them to contact their pastor for additional information and 
an application form. With God's help, and your generosity, we will continue to meet every 
eligible request with the funds we have. 

In 1999 Golden Cross received $622.00 in special offerings from our local churches. 
In as much as our budget for the year 2000 is only $27,752.00. The demand for help will 
probably exceed our budget. Receive a special offering for Golden Cross, and send it to 
Golden Cross, c/o Caroline Buckland, PO Box 10955, Raleigh, NC 27605. God Bless you. 

Richard C. Vaughan, Director 
Methodist Home for Children Child & Family Service 

The Methodist Home for Children (MHC) is an exciting place to work. Great progress 
has been made during the year to regionalize our services and administration and to initiate 
new programs. This past year was also a great year to celebrate our centennial. The 
Methodist Home for Children has been in ministry to children and families for 100 years. 

Accolades are in order for our new adoption program. Due to the efforts of the MHC 
adoption staff, twelve children have found permanent homes and a family they can claim 
as their own. Serious efforts are under way to identify additional families for our children 
in care who need permanent homes. MHC is specializing in special needs adoptions. MHC 
defines children with special needs as older children with some defined challenges and who 
may have parents but their parental rights have been terminated. One of the most 
significant ways a church can be involved with MHC is to assist us in recruiting foster and 
adoptive homes. There is no greater immediate need for children. 
"A Winter's Tale" - January 30 

Our 2"° annual gala was a very successful kickoff to our Centennial year. 430 people 
attended raising $75,000. Dr. LeRoy Walker and Charlie Gaddy charmed the crowd with 
their comments and book signing of "An Olympic Journey." The new promotional video 
was unveiled along with the Centennial Portrait, Mended Dreams. 
Methodist Orphanage/Methodist Home for Children Alunrini Reunion - April 2-4 
Over 300 alumni, the largest group ever, returned to Raleigh for a series of weekend 
activities on Easter weekend. Golf^ tournament, dinner dance and church service were 
followed by a picnic and Easter egg hunt at the Borden building. The Alumni Association 
reached its goal of increasing The Alumni Endowment fund to $100,000. 
Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church - June 9 - 13 

More than 100 alumni, staff and current residents of MHC joined together to share our story 
with 1,700 delegates from across the conference through video, music and personal 
testimonies. This inspirational event educated the audience on MHC's mission and thanked 
the church for its partnership over the past 100 years. In addition to the Saturday evening 
program, more than 130 United Methodist Women groups made auilt squares for MHC s 
Centennial Quilt Project. These commemorative quilts were completed and presented to 
MHC at Annual Conference. The quilts will hang permanently in MHC's new Child & Family 
Enrichment Center. 

Special Olympics World Surnrner Games - June 26- July 4 

MHC's 100"' community birthday party was held at Meredith College on Sun., June 27 in 
conjunction with the 1999 World Games Special Olympics. MHC was the only non-profit 
cash sponsor and was granted a display/tent area at tne Olympic Festival. Over 4,000 
people attended the birthday party and 10,000 visitors passed through MHC's tent 
throughout the week. More than 500 staff and volunteer hours were needed to staff the 
seven-day event. 



Recognition Sunday/United Methodist Church - November 21 

A letter from Mike Safley and Bishop Edwards was mailed to pastors encouraging them to 
request an MHC speaker for Recognition Sunday, insert the MHC flyer in their bulletins, 
purchase a "Mended Dreams" print for their church and promote David Witt's Tapes/CD 
sales to their congregation. Approximately 25 speakers were secured for the day and a full- 
page ad ran in the Christian Advocate to promote the event.

As we move into the next millennium, our 100 years of experience compels us to 
expand our mission and address the needs of our youngest citizens. MHC is developing 
early childhood initiatives to help communities develop quality childcare programs. The 
cornerstone of this initiative is the Jordan Child and Family Enrichment Center that will be 
a model childcare facility, providing outreach programs and on-site training for parents and 
childcare workers. 


A $6 million capital campaign to build and sustain the planned Jordan Child & Family 
Enrichment Center began Jan. 1 , 1 999. Planning and implementation of the Cornerstone 
Campaign has moved forward with unimaginable success. The advanced gifts phase of the 
Campaign officially kicked-off January 1, 1999. In 14 months of activity, an excess of 
$4,360,000 has been secured, including the two largest gifts in the history of the Methodist 
Home for Children - $1,250,000 and $1,000,000. Over $1,700,000 in commitments have 
been received from MHC's Board of Directors, eight leadership commitments of $100,000 
+ have been secured, and the North Carolina Conference of tne United Methodist Church 
donated land valued at $500,000 for the site of the Center. A very successful 
groundbreaking ceremoriy took place Oct. 12, 1999, with Gov. Hunt and 25(5 participants 
supporting the efforts. These early successes have set the stage for MHC to reach or 
exceed its $6 million goal by the end of the Campaign's public phase in December 2000. 

Michael W. Safley, President/CEO 
The United Methodist Retirement Homes, Inc. 

This is will be the last report that I will make on the on the status of The United 
Methodist Retirement Homes, Incorporated. It has been a significant year in many respects. 
Above all, the completion and opening of the Croasdaile Village Retirement Community in 
Durham will have tne greatest impact on the future of this ministry. 

Croasdaile Village is located in Croasdaile Farm in the northwest quadrant of the city 
of Durham. It is a breathtakingly beautiful area. Croasdaile Village is an outstanding facility 
featuring a full continuum of care for its residents. There are 257 independent living units, 
86 assisted living units, and 114 skilled nursing beds. When fully occupied Croasdaile 
Village will be home to about 600 residents. 

The completion of the construction of Croasdaile Village has not come without a full 
measure of difficulty. The United Methodist Retirement Homes is indebted to Can-Do 
Construction Co. of Wilmington, Delaware and Engineered Construction Co. of Raleigh for 

their efforts is getting the work completed. Freeman White Architects of Charlotte were the 
'the proj€ 
As Croasdaile Village was being completed, it became more and more necessary to 

architects for the project. 

look closely at continuing the operation of the Methodist Retirement Community on Erwin 
Road in Durham. At the Annual Meeting of the Board of Trustees of the corporation in 
September, it was decided that the forty-five year old facility would be closed and sold. 
Three parties have submitted offers to purchase the property. These offers continue to be 
negotiated by representatives of the corporation. All residents moved from Methodist 
Retirement Community by the end of April 2000. It is anticipated that the sale of the 
property will be finalized by the end of June. 

In September the Cypress Glen Retirement Community was devastated by flood 
following Hurricane Floyd. The entire community was evacuated, and the residents were 

253 Reports 

fortunate to find shelter and excellent care at Croasdaile Village. The ground level of all four 
wings of the Cypress Glen complex were flooded by nearly four feet of water and needed 
to be totally renovated. This evacuation and renovation has proven to be a tremendous 
challenge for the staff and residents of Cypress Glen, but they have been equal to the 
challenge and have performed heroically. We are indebted to many persons from across 
the conference who have supported us with prayers and gifts during this time of disaster 
and rebuilding. Cypress Glen will be "whole" again by the end of the calendar year 2000. 

The corporation began the year looking forward to a merger with the Duke University 
Health System, but that did not happen because of a change in IRS ruling that prohibited 
the Health System from utilizing tax-exempt bonds to acquire independent living units. The 
majority of the living units owned by the corporation are independent living units. The 
decision not to merge set us back, but the Duke University Health System assisted the 
corporation to secure interim financing for the Croasdaile Village project until such time as 
the corporation will be able to secure permanent bond financing. It is anticipated that this 
bond financing will occur in the first half of 2000. 

The Fiscal Year 1999 has been a very difficult one for the corporation. With the 
opening of Croasdaile Village and operating challenges at Methodist Retirement 
Community, there has been a significant cash flow shortfall In spite of this experience, we 
have provided more than $1.6 million in benevolent care to senior adults in eastern North 
Carolina. As we face a critical struggle in our state to retain property tax exemption, the 
direct care we give to persons in need is a major factor in helping us to retain this tax 

At the annual meeting in September, Mrs. Betty S. Speir of Bethel assumed the office 
of Chair of the Board of Trustees succeeding Mr. Gary H. Fisher of Rockingham who had 
served in that capacity for the past four years. All who are related to The United Methodist 
Retirement Homes are indebted to Mr. Fisher for his sacrificial service. 

On a personal note, 1 notified the Board of Trustees in October 1999 of my plans to 
retire in June 2000, and the Board chose to contract with Life Care Services, LLP of Des 
Moines, Iowa to provide the management for the corporation. Life Care Services manages 
84 retirement communities throughout the nation. The Board has named Christopher B. 
("Chris") Cryder as the Corporate Executive Director effective February 3, 2000. Mr. Cryder 
is an employee of Life Care Services and is a life-long United Methodist. 

Mr. Cryder and the Board of Trustees have asked that 1 remain with the Retirement 
Homes as Director of Church Relations and Development. 1 make this transition with a 
great sense of satisfaction in the completion of the Croasdaile Village project, the major 
expansion at Cypress Glen, the excellent operation at Wesley Pines, and the management 
arrangement at Quail Haven. We currently serve more than twice the number of residents 
we served seven years ago. I am committed to the ministry of The United Methodist 
Retirement Homes and I support the new management team enthusiastically. 1 encourage 
all who have supported the ministry of The United Methodist Retirement Homes in the past 
to continue this support into the new millennium. May God richly bless each of you. 

Reginald W. Ponder, President/CEO 


The United Methodist Church and its predecessor denominations have always 
demonstrated a deep commitment to learning. Our heritage is steeped in a tradition of 
close connections between the church and its schools, colleqes, universities, seminaries, 
and campus ministries. The tradition began on the North American continent in 1784 
when members of the Christmas Conference, American Methodism's founding event, 
decided to build a college. That early emphasis on education has been maintained through 
the years, leading our denomination to establish more than 1 ,200 schools, colleges, and 
universities~of which 124 remain today. Additionally, we have approximately 700 campus 
ministers and college/university chaplains engaged in ministries on our behalf. 

Presently, we are in a supportive relationship with three colleges (Louisburg, 
Methodist, and North Carolina Wesleyan), with the Divinity School at Duke; and with 
Wesley Foundations and ecumenical campus ministries on 18 campuses. The work of 
United Methodist campus ministry in North Carolina is shared between the two annual 
conferences in the state, through the State Commission on Campus Ministry. 

The Commission on Higher Education and Campus A\inistry is the church's 
representative in this ongoing interaction between the church and its educational 
ministries. We seek to help the institutions claim their uniquely Christian character. 
Likewise, we work to encourage the church to claim these institutions as valid extension 
ministries and to support them at the appropriate level. 

The Commission is aware of the pressure on our annual conference budget and 
acknowledges that we must look critically at all of the conference's ministry involvements. 
However, we believe that we must continue to place a high value on our historic work in 

Reports 254 

higher education. We believe that the future health of the church necessitates a sustained 
investment in the lives of young women and men through our ministries in higher 

As the funding we provide to our colleges and Duke Divinity School continues to be 
reduced, we encourage the Annual Conference to seek other ways to maintain our faith 
relationship with these institutions. The Commission on Higher Education and Campus 
A\inistry believes that one of the ways to maintain our connection to these institutions is 
by allowing and encouraging them to have direct contact with our local churches. If we are 
not going to continue to fund, in a significant way, these ministries through our 
apportionments, then we should allow these institutions to build relationships directly with 
local churches. The colleges and the divinity school should be encouraged to "tell their 
stories" to our congregations, to actively recruit students from our parishes, and to invite 
financial assistance through the congregations' second-mile giving programs. 

On behalf of the men and women whose lives are being shaped by our campus 
ministries, our colleges, and the Duke Divinity School, 1 want to thank the Annual 
Conference for its vision in establishing these ministries. Let us continue to have vision and 
courage as we look for new ways for nurturing our ministries in higher education and 
campus ministry. 

Raegan V. May, Chairperson 

The State Commission on Campus Ministry is the collaborative organization of the 
North Carolina Conference and Western North Carolina Annual Conference for oversight 
of United Methodist carnpus ministry in 16 campus settings: GNC-Asheville, Winston- 
Salem State University, Central Piedmont Community College, North Carolina Central 
University, UNC-Pembroke, UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Charlotte, Duke, NC A&T University, 
Wake Forest-Salem-School of the Arts, East Carolina University, UNC-Greensboro, 
Appalachia State University, Western Carolina University, North Carolina State University, 
and UNC-Chapel Hill. Some of these campus ministries are UM Wesley Foundations, and 
some are organized cooperatively in ecumenical settings. 

The Commission, comprised of representatives from the NC and WNC Conferences, 
meets three times a year to give guidance to campus ministries across our state. In 
addition, the finance committee meets to recommend the annual budget and the executive 
committee meets as necessary. The total Commission budget is funded through the two 
conferences, with 40% coming from the NC Conference and 60% coming from the WNC 
Conference. The commission budget is used largely for salary support for campus

The Handbook for North Carolina State Commission on Campus Ministry, developed 
and continually updated by the Commission, serves as a working guide to local campus 
ministry committees, to campus ministers, and to the Commission. 

A review process has been established to assist local campus ministries in self- 
evaluation and planning for the future. Reviews of all campus ministry units are now 
complete. Facility reviews have been conducted at all campus ministries with buildings in 
order to evaluate facilities needs and to project budgets for needed repairs and 

Training for members of campus ministry boards was offered in November, 1 999, 
and will be offered annually in an effort to strengthen campus ministry boards. 

AMnistries on our campuses are vibrant and varied: students participate in Bible study, 
covenant discipleship groups, music ministry, volunteer-in-mission work teams, tutoring, 
regular worship, service projects, and leadership conferences. Students attend state, 
regional, national, international, and ecumenical meetings. Campus ministry alumni leave 
the campus, prepared to serve Christ in the world, in lay and ordained ministry and in 
careers of loving service. 

Two new campus ministry initiatives are emerging within the bounds of the NC 
Conference. The first new emerging ministry is the Ecumenical Campus Ministry at 
Fayetteville State University. A Board is in place, composed of leaders of four judicatories 
and from the Fayetteville area churches. Alicia Smith, a student at FSU and a member of 
John Wesley UMC, is the leader of the student group. You are urged to support this new 
ministry with your prayers and your gifts 

The Wesley Fellowship of Elon College began with support of First UMC, Elon 
College and Front Street UMC, Burlington. The Wesley Fellowship is a new model for

The State Commission on Campus Ministry urges every lay and clergy member of the 
Annual Conference to interpret the ministries on our campuses supported through the 
budget of the Annual Conference, to inform youth of campus ministry opportunities as 
they leave high school and transition to campus life, and to lead local churches to offer 
gifts of prayers, partnership, and support to students, campus ministers, and campus 
ministry units. 

Hope Morgan Ward, Council on Ministries Executive Director 
Candler School of Theology 

Candler School of Theology savors its mission to educate faithful and creative leaders 
for the church's ministries. We are grateful for the many ways in which we are supported 
in this effort by churches and individuals across the life of the church. The prayers, service, 
and gifts of many sustain and inspire us. 

In fall 1999, Candler enrolled 535 students. The entering class of 202 was drawn from 
a pool of 605 applicants, a record high for the second year in a row. The student body 
reflects the school's commitment to educatinq church leaders. Of our new M. Div. students, 
77% will seek ordination. (Of GM entering AlDiv. students, 87.4% will seek ordination.) 
Among our M.Div. graduates in 1998-99, 65% were preparing for parish ministry. This 
contrasts with the national average of 49%. Other students anticipate ministry as chaplains, 
educators or social justice workers. 

New and added scholarship funds from the Cannon, Pitts, Garrett, Quenelle, and 
Sherman bequests deepen our ties to the church. Due to these funds, Candler awarded 
scholarships covering 90% or more of tuition to half of the entering M.Div. class. The 
Ministerial Education Fund continues to be a major source of support and encouragement 
to the faculty and students. Our appreciation for this commitment on the part of the 
church to the financial stability of its seminaries is profound. The costs of theological 
education however, continue to rise. For this reason, we continue to seek scholarship 
support for students in an effort to limit the funds they must borrow for their theological 

The new Contextual Education program is now in its second year. It engages students 
in practices of theological and ministry formation grounded in the Wesleyan tradition. A 
$1.5 million grant from the Lilly Endowment provides funds to try new approaches and to 
train the faculty 
and the pastors, and other community leaders to teach in this program. 

Candler shares with Columbia Theological Seminary and Interdenominational 
Theological Center another $2.5 million grant for a project called "Faith and the City." This 
cooperative venture is designed to equip pastors and other church leaders for leadership 
In public life. 

Candler professors serve the churches in many ways. They produce several books 
each year for use in congregations. Last year they preached, gave lectures, taught in 
Sunday schools, and led workshops more than 575 times in congregations across the 
nation. New faculty members add new strength to the teaching and scholarship of the 
school. In fall 1999, Mary Elizabeth Moore, a national leader in Christian religious 
education with wide experience in the United Methodist Church, joined the faculty as the 
director of the Program for Women in Theology and Ministry. Michael Joseph Brown, 
whose research interests have centered on prayer in the early church, became assistant 
professor of New Testament. Timothy Sandoval became a visiting 
assistant instructor in Old Testament. Jong Chun Park, a Candler alumnus and professor 
at the Methodist Theological Seminary in Seoul, joined us for the fall semester as visiting 
professor of systematic theology. 

Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu of South Africa, the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, 
remained with us a second year, teaching courses and lecturing as the William R. Cannon 
Distinguished Visiting Professor of Theology. Pitts Theology Ubrary is the second-largest 
theological library in North America. With 490,000 volume's, including 94,000 in Special 
Collections, it attracts scholars from around the e world. A range of educational programs 
and the World Wide Web enhances the accessibility of the library's resources. Community 
life is full and richly varied with leadership from students, faculty and staff. Three weekly 
chapel services, morning prayer four days a week, lectures, concerts, weekly informal 
conversations on theology, prayer groups and Bible studies, and panel discussions on 
spiritual, ethical, theological and practical subjects throughout the year enliven our time 

I have appreciated the opportunity to serve Candler School of Theology as its interim 
dean this year. From the perspective of this office I have become even more aware of the 
deep commitment of people across the church to theological education generally and to 
Candler specifically. I have been humbled by the generosity of spirit I have encountered

The Divinity School of Duke University 

The Divinity School of Duke University continues to prepare faithful, effective 
leadership for the church through its distinguished academic and field programs for clergy 
and lay education. 

The largest initiative undertaken during the 1999-2000 year was planning for the 
launch of The Duke Institute on Care at the End of Life. The institute, which is oased at 
the Divinity School, seeks to improve care at the end of life through interdisciplinary 
scholarship, teaching and public outreach. The school's new Theology and Medicine 
Program complements the institute, and includes a partnership with the Duke School of 
Nursing to provide three new graduate programs for nurses who will provide care within 
their faith communities. The first students will enter in fall 2000. Other new programs 
include a local urban ministry project, the planning and funding for a major program for 
youth exploring Christian vocation, and an intensive leadership education initiative for 
church ministry. 

Student enrollment for 1999-2000 was 468 full-time with 54 percent men and 46 
percent women, including an ethnic minority enrollment of 16 percent. They came from 
30 states and 10 foreign countries with degrees from 31 1 colleges and universities. Thirty- 
six denominations were represented. Sixty percent of the students were United Methodist. 
Baptists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians and Roman Catholics represent the other largest 

Peter Storey, former leader of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa and past- 
president of the South African Council of Churches, joined the faculty as professor of the 
practice of Christian ministry. Daphne C. Wiggins, previously on the faculty of Texas 
Christian University, was appointed assistant professor of congregational studies. Carolyn 
Lucas was named to the new position of chaplain of the Divinity School. New members 
appointed to the Board of Visitors are Michael H. Browder, Leesburg, Va.; Eric A. Law, 
Berkley, AMch.; Nancy Aikens Rich, Redding, Conn.; G. Austin Triggs Jr., Nashville, Tenn.; 
and James W. Gmmer, Pittsburgh, Pa. 

The public announcement of The Campaign for Duke generated great enthusiasm 
and the momentum is strong for achieving the Divinity School's $35 million goal by 2003. 
Highest priorities are for endowed scholarships and professorships. Graduates and friends 
joined with foundations and churches to contribute a record $7.8 million in support during 
fiscal 1998-99. For the second consecutive year the faculty, staff. National Alumni Council 
and Board of Visitors of the Divinity School achieved 100 percent donor participation.

The vision of the Conference Commission on Laity is for every local church in the 
annual conference to effectively focus on the primary task of the GMC:"To Make Disciples 
of Jesus Christ." We have attempted to accomplish this in various ways. 

Districts continue to provide the Leadership Development workshops each year. TTiis 
training for laity leadership in the local church is invaluable and has been the primary 
training for local church officers. Those who serve as instructors for the training event 
throughout our annual conference are to be commended; the feedback and evaluations 
indicate that the training is practical and relevant to the needs of the local church officers. 

Our District Lay Rallies continue to be a time of celebration and recognition of the 
ministry of the laity. The rallies use a variety of themes and have dynamic speakers and 
programs. Our District Lay Leaders are to be commended for their leadership at these 
rallies and other opportunities where they help prepare laity to be in ministry. 

The Lay Speaking program under the leaaersnip of our Conference Director of Lay 
Speaking, Tom Walden, has continued to grow. Many lay speakers in our conference 
share their gifts and talents and are very active in our leadership positions in our local 
churches and communities. TTiis program allows some of our churches to have worship 
every Sunday by utilizing lay speakers as well as churches being able to have a worship 
service when the pastor has to be absent. The Lay Speaker training program provides 
some of the most effective training for our laity. The willingness of our lay speakers to 
serve in a variety of ways is greatly appreciated. 

The Commission has been blessed by the leadership of Rev. Carol D. Hayes, 
Associate Director of the Conference Council on Ministries, as the staff representative. She 
has served as an excellent resource person and has been very supportive of the ministry 
of the laity. We are thankful for her work throughout the conference and the gifts she

The Commission attempts to qather input from the laity about the effectiveness of the 
annual conference in equipping the laity to be in ministry. Remember to share your 
concerns and hopes so that we may work together in new and better ways. 

Each local church is encouraged to celebrate Laity Sunday (third Sunday in October), 
or another time if there is a conflict, each year. It is important to recognize the ministry 
of the laity. It is more important that each church focus on helping each church member 
to be in ministry. We must ensure that our laity are trained, empowered and sent forth to 
do the ministry to which each person is called.

The North Carolina Christian Advocate provides Gnited Methodist-related news, 
commentary, and features for more than 13,000 subscribers across the state. The paper 
maintains a national, conference and local focus that is targeted at church members in the 
North Carolina and Western Morth Carolina conferences. The paper, funded by a 
combination of subscriptions, endowments, and grants from the conferences, offers 
columns and commentary by North Carolina Conference writers- Bishop Marion Edwards, 
Hope Morgan Ward, Debra Murphy, Paul Stallsworth, Sillar Smith and others. 

The paper, considered the voice of United Methodism in North Carolina, has recently 
upgraded in a number of areas, including: graphics (a new and talented staff member), 
paper (a brighter white paper for easier readability), technology (digital files for photos and 
receipt of files via email); and the home page (updated before every issue is printed). These 
changes have enhanced appearance, readability, and general appeal of tne publication, 
which is beginning to attract a younger audience. 

Much of the news for 2000 will concern what occurs at General, Annual, and 
Jurisdictional conferences. Through the Advocate, the vision of mission and ministry 
within NC is reported and celebrated.

The Commission on Missions and Outreach functions to provide front line, immediate 
service in mission for our Annual Conference and direct aid around the world. Our scope 
includes: 1 .) support for international mission initiatives, 2) support for mission and service 
projects within the North Carolina Annual Conference, 3) support for new mission 
initiatives by local churches and mission organizations connected to the Gnited Methodist 
Church, 4) education and cultivation for mission, specifically including the VIM program, 
mission saturation events, the Rainbow Covenant Program, speakers for local church 
education events, and district mission initiatives, and 5) the new function of recruitment 
and support for mission personnel to be placed both in our Annual Conference and 
around the world. 

The members of the Commission on Missions and Outreach also function as an 
institutional lending body, The Board of iV\issions, Inc. This institution provides loans 
to local churches for land acquisition, repair, and new construction. In the 1999 
Conference year we loaned over $600,000. With this aid we helped begin several new 
churches, and provided funds to nine existing churches for renovations. 

We employ 2 Conference Construction Coordinators , Mr. Gary Smith and Brian 
Wheeler. With this help local churches may "build their own" additions and renovations. 
Through this service we have saved the NC Conference churches over $500,000 in 
construction costs in the past year. 
Highlights of Our Past Year of Service: 

Response to Hurricane Floyd: We have raised over $1.2 million in direct aid, helped 
organize over 3,000 teams to provide relief and service, and worked with the disaster 
response committee to provide institutional assistance for one of the great natural 
disasters in our state's history. 

Africa Children's Initiative: We have raised over $430,000 towards our goal of 
$288,000 set by our Bishop in the new church wide Africa Children's Initiative. Partnered 
with Stop Hunger Now, the NC Conference is helping provide 500,000 pounds of 
dehydrated milk to the children of Sierra Leone. 

Armenia: Support for Project Agape, Inc., including the shipment of 6 sea Qoinq 
container with over $300,000 worth of commodities in conjunction with the Western North 
Carolina Annual Conference. 

Peru: Working with the Peru Covenant Task Force we supported ministry initiatives 
including purchasing Sunday School curriculum for every church in the Peru Conference, 
as well as provided teacher training for leaders.

Chile: Working with John Wesley Center in Santiago, Chile, we support Shana 
Harrison in a program with developmentally disabled young people. 

Obras De Wesley: We are a founding partner in the effort to translate the works of 
John Wesley into Spanish. Through our effort the General Board of Global Ministries has 
joined in a partnership to provide $350,000 towards this effort. 
Conference Projects: 

Roberson Country Church and Community Center: We are the backbone funding for 
the Executive Staff of the Center 

Chatam-Lee Hispanic Ministry: We are the primary funder for the executive staff of 
the ministry. 
Education and Cultivation: 

Our Volunteers in Missions Program continues to be a model for that effort in the 
Southeast Jurisdiction. 

Rainbow Covenant Program: By encouraging local churches to give to all five lanes 
of mission and be recognized for their effort, we have moved mission education forward 
in the Conference in the past year. 
Church and Community Grants: 

The Commission is able to make small to moderate grants to enable and encourage 
mission activities in our Conference . In 1999 we supported: 

Society of St. Andrew: the world class gleaning network, whose state wide 
organization is based in the bounds of our Conference. 

Trinity Gnwed Parent Pre-school: we support new Hanover High School students who 
are trying to make a new life for themselves and their children. 

Juan Wesley Center Lunch Program, Chile: we support the feeding of children in this 
school for children with disabilities. 

Brunswick Country Teen Runaway Center, Brunswick County: A faith based short 
term housing facility for homeless children, which housed over 60 children in 1999 

Food Bank Of North Carolina: we support direct support of one of the premiere food 
recovery programs in the state. 

Mission Personnel: The North Carolina Conference and the General Board of Global 
Ministries broke new ground in the placement of mission personnel this year. Gnder the 
GBGM plan of 10-10-10 (10 placements, 10 missioners, 10 support churches) we have 
led the nation in new mission placements. We have placed Rev. Shana Harrison, Revs. 
Mark and Pat Lykins, Walk and Pat Ebert, Steve Taylor in full time settings. In addition we 
have also located Eric Torres from Peru to distribute Obras de Wesley, Rev. Butch 
Huffman for Hurricane Floyd relief. Rev. Jose Luis Zamora from Mexico for Hispanic 
Ministries, and LuAnn Charlton for Disciple Bible Studies in our small membership 
churches and prisons. 
New Initiatives: 

STOP HGNGER NOW: This international humanitarian aid ministry is now two years 
old. In 1999 Stop Hunger Now moved their national offices to Raleigh, NC. The national 
office is now housed in Fairmont Clnited Methodist Church, Raleigh. With the vision and 
initial support of the NC Annual Conference, Stop Hunger Now has been recognized as 
a national advance special by the United Methodist Church.

The 1999 Conference qoal of $20,000 for Native American Awareness Sunday was not 
met with offerings totaling less than 50% of the goal. Three districts (Durham, Elizabeth 
City, and Raleigh) were selected and saturated with Native American preachers and laity. 
These districts gave over 75% of the $8,000 raised. 

Half of this amount ($4,000) remained in our Annual Conference to help strengthen 
local and jurisdictional Native Arnerican Ministries. Funds were given to SEJNAM, to the 
newly estaolished Rockingham District, and to Native Americans participating in Disciple 
training and Emmaus Walk. Additional ministries were not funded due to the failure of our 
conference to meet the 1999 goal. 

In 2000, three districts (Rocky Mount, Wilmington, and Rockingham) were saturated 
with Native Americans May 7, 200(3, on Native American Awareness Sunday. Each of these 
districts were asked to raise $2,500. Our goal for 2000 is $27,000 for the entire conference. 

This year, the committee had a representative in each district to serve as an advocate 
and a leader in strengthening Native American ministry in the district.

"Racism must not be tolerated in the body of Christ because it clearly violates our unity 
in Christ given to us in baptism. Is not baptism compromised, as a sign of visible unity and 
proclamation of faith, as long as racism is practiced in the church? Put another w/ay, if 
baptism is the basis of our unity in Jesus Christ, are not racist beliefs and practices among 
baptized Christians a scandal within the community of believers? 

Does not the presence of racism in the Christian family pose a stumbling block to those for 
whom the church's witness is intended to reveal God's unconditional love and justice for 

The above statement and questions were taken from the book Ending Racism in the 
Church , edited by Susan Davies and Sister Paul Teresa Hennessee. The Commission used 
this book as a resource to enhance its ministry of reconciliation and inclusiveness. At the 
fall meeting, Commission members spent time sharing what they had gleaned from the 
book. The Commission recommends this resource to others who are interested in the 
ministry of inclusiveness. 

Our fall workshop, which was to lead by Rev. Chester Jones, General Secretary of the 
Commission on Religion and Race, was rescheduled to January due to the flooding in the 
eastern part of North Carolina. The flood recovery efforts exhibited that in disaster and 
adversity people of different races and religions can come together to bring about comfort 
and healing. In January, North Carolina was blanketed with 20 inches of snow resulting in 
the cancellation of the workshop. 

The Commission reviewed and evaluated the Conference Plan on Inclusiveness. While 
the plan was excellent on paper, its implementation was less than good. Many members 
in local congregations were not even aware of the document. Several listed activities were 
not carried out. The most effective iniplemented activity has been the addition of a 
program on inclusiveness at the Annual Conference. 

As we end a quadrennium and begin a new millennium, the Commission challenges 
you to envision what a truly inclusive church looks like. What would this church look Tike 
if it had overcome racism'^ Until the stigma of racism is eradicated from the church, it 
cannot be a credible witness to the world.

The Conference Commission on the Status and Role of Women continues to focus 
on: 1) Fostering an awareness of the church's continuing commitment to the full and equal 
responsibility and participation of women in the total life and mission of the church. 2) 
Recommending program opportunities for worship, fellowship, witness, study, nurture and 
service that confirm anew the liberating message of Jesus Christ that recognizes every 
person, woman or man, as a full and eaual part of God's human family. 

The Commission advocates for "Women in the Pulpit" with emphasis upon every 
church having at least one appointable, clergy woman in its pulpit at least one Sunday of 
the year. Surveys are kept of churches who cooperate with this ministry and the 
Commission gives attention to the comments that are made by these churches. The bishop 
is informed of the places where there is hospitality towarci women in the pulpit. The 
Commission celebrates with churches that open their doors to women and minorities and 
seeks to join them in their efforts. 

The Commission tries to keep the church sensitive to issues of children and poverty, 
spouse and child abuse and neglect, sexual harassment in the workplace and 
homelessness. This year the Commission co-sponsored with the Fayetteville, Rockingham, 
and Sanford Districts a workshop on social problems. The purpose of this workshop was 
to help the Conference to see that these are church problems and the church must design 
its ministry to assist persons in their midst known in the Bible as "the least of these." 
Church leaders and Christian educators, social services leaders, Methodist Home for 
Children personnel combined efforts to come up with solutions to these social problems in 
our communities. Commission Members are strengthened in this ministry each year so that 
they can give effective leadership in districts and local churches. Materials and scholarships 
are provided for women to be empowered for this ministry of justice. 

Jimmy Cummings has given very capable leadership to the work of the Commission 
and we are grateful for his dedication. Tnanks to the members of the Commission who 
continue to share in the pain and joy as women in the North Carolina Conference grow.

Earlier this year, the Conference Commission on Stewardship met to determine its 
vision, mission, and objectives for the next few years. We were led by a vision "to enable all 
Christians to experience the joy of Christian stewardship." Our commission adopted a two- 
fold mission to work toward tnat vision: (1) to communicate a Biblical understanding of 
Christian stewardship, and (2) to equip local church pastors and laypersons to be effective 
stewardship leaders. 

The commission adopted 6 objectives and 10 action steps that would be employed 
to accomplish these objectives. The action steps include continuing to sponsor the annual 
Stewardship Seminar for Pastors New to the Conference and developing a conference-wide 
stewardship event. In addition, we plan to develop District Stewardship Response Teams 
and create a conference stewardship web page. Other initiatives include creating a 
stewardship newsletter and continuing to send our district representatives to regional and 
national training events. 

Commission members provide leadership to every district in the area of stewardship, 
and are trained to lead stewardship workshops at the district and local church levels. The 
Stewardship Seminar for New Pastors will be held for the fourth time in 2000. This event 
trains 40-50 new pastors each year, enabling them to become more effective stewardship 
leaders in their local churches. 

The Commission on Stewardship also collects and maintains the latest stewardship 
resources, which are available for review by district representatives, local church pastors, 
and lay persons. Bill Norton has served very effectively tor many years as our commission's 
key resource person. Carol Hayes is now serving the commission in that role. She can be 
reached at the Methodist Building (1-800-849-4433). In addition, Lynn James, Executive 
Director of the United Methodist fecundation, is a key contact person in the area of planned 
giving. Many churches have established Foundation accounts with funds that have been 
given through estates and wills. The Foundation has also developed a comprehensive 
notebook which can guide local churches in creating a permanent endowment fund 

The Commission on Stewardship desires to be the key resource in enabling disciples 
of Jesus Christ in the North Carolina Conference to grow in their stewardship. As people 
begin to understand the spiritual aspects of Christian stewardship, we believe that they will 
grow in becoming more effective stewards of the gifts that God has entrusted to them

The Commission's plans for 1999 Annual Conference helped facilitate "holy 
conferencing", a very welcome and refreshing change from the business orientation of 
previous conferences. The move to the Cumberland County Auditorium complex was made 
with noticeable benefit. Seeking an increased exposure to our rich variety of worship and 
music, plans for the upcoming year include: a move of morning communion into the 
auditorium; an increase in congregational singing; and work session preludes provided by 
local church singing groups. As we enter the new millennium, the Conference Commission 
on Worship faces tremendous opportunities and decisions. First and foremost will be in 
determining the commission's location and interaction in the newly proposed Annual 
Conference structure. Worship and its members have always been available for education 
and training in the districts. But in recent years our primary task has moved away from that 
function and become more focused on preparation and delivery of worship services for 
conference events. Thus it seems appropriate that Worship fall under the Episcopal portion 
of the new structure. However, there may be a need for a more proactive response to the 
changing nature of United Methodist worship over the next two decades. In that scenario, 
Worship will best fit in the arena of Spiritual Formation and Leadership Development . In 
either case, a streamlining of membership (moving away from district and at-large 
appointments, and toward a small core of spiritually called worship leaders) will likely be 
helpful. For the last seven years, our conference worship leadership has been provided by 
the gracious spirit of the Reverend Charles M. Cook. For all the years, inspiration, and 
attention to detail, Thanks Chuck!.

The Commission on Congregational Development continues to work in three 
principle areas: 

I. New Church Development 

The North Carolina Conference continues to be a leader in new congregational 
development ministries. Since 1995, 22 new churches have been planted in eastern North 
Carolina. We continue to be impressed with the urgent need for the development of new 
congregations to assist the Conference in meeting its mission of making disciples. In fact, 
most of the net membership growth of the North Carolina Conference can be credited to 
our newest churches. One of our youngest churches, Covenant in Greenville, with more 
than 1500 persons in average worship attendance, is the largest worship attendance 
church in the Conference. These new churches are being started in all kinds of 
communities and among all kinds of people. 

New churches started since last conference session are: Windborne GMC 
(Raleigh)-Jon Strother, pastor; a yet to be named new church in Fuquay-Varina- Dick 
Blankenhorn, pastor; and Faith Harbor GMC (Topsail Island)-Tom Greener, pastor. New 
churches are planned in 2000 in Jacksonville and Raleigh. 

A. Leadership - Prospective new church pastors are being tested and trained to be 
available to lead new churches. The Director of the Office of Congregational 
Development continues to give leadership to the Duke National Institute for New 
Church Development. 

B. Location - A number of communities and locales across the Conference are 
being identified as likely sites for new churches. The Percept Program continues 
to provide demographic profiles of the unchurched people that would require 
a new church mission. 

C. Funding - The Emerging Church Salary Support Fund is currently providing 
partial compensation for the pastors of new congregations. 

D. The John Wesley Endowment for New Church Development in Low Income 
Communities raised nearly $400,000 in pledges from local churches to be paid 
by annual conference in the year 2000. Our goal is to establish a $1,000,000 

E. The Ten Dollar Club encourages new members to purchase multiple shares at 
$10 each. 

II. Congregational Redevelopment 

A. On average, about 100 churches are assisted each year by the Office of 
Congregational Development with workshops, consultations, and small grants. 

B. A "Change Conference," for churches in transition, led by Tom Bandy, was 
conducted on September 10 and 1 1. This event was co-sponsored with the 
Evangelism Commission and Durham District and was held at Fuquay-Varina 

III. Churches of Small Membership 

A. The Office of Congregational Development assists small membership churches 
and cooperative parish ministries each year. 

B. A task force within the Commission is guiding the work in this area: A Vital 
Congregations workshop was offered to churches of small membership in 
March 2000 at the Bergland Center at Camp Rockfish. The event was led by 
Julia Kuhn Wallace of the General Board of Discipleship. Scholarships were 
offered to participants upon request. 

In the next year, all charge conference Table I and II forms will be available on the 
web. Information will be sent directly over the internet and downloaded into a Conference 
database for wide use. 

The 1998 North Carolina Annual Conference voted to align the Director of the Office 
of Congregational Development with the Bishop's office and to work directly with the 
Cabinet. Dr. Steve Compton continues to give strong leadership to the Commission and 
the Conference efforts of Congregational Development and Redevelopment.

Someone has said, "There are too many churches with impeccable credentials for 
orthodox theology whose outreach is almost nil. They are sound, but they are sound asleep." 
Thank God for our Gnited Methodists in Eastern North Carolina who are awakening to the 
need for our churches to lead in so many vital ministries. As districts bridge from one century 
into the next, we do it with the sound of a trumpet blast which is setting the spiritual tone into 
our 21" century. Thank God for the continued large increase in Confession of Faith in our

districts and the continual growth numerically of persons joining our churches. We see 
revitalization in many areas of our church, especially with "Disciple" not only being taught in 
our churches, but now in our prisons, where testimony is being given about how this is 
changing lives of many. Also, we continue to hear of great things happening with our 
"Children and Poverty" in all twelve districts. Now we see new doors of opportunity opening 
for our churches within our schools as "Hand in Hand" gives our Conference strong 
leadership in this new area of ministry. 

While our Conference has experienced a terrible flood, the disaster has brought our 
districts together as nothing 1 can remember. We have seen districts helping other districts 
and a willingness to contribute money and time to assist those who were devastated by the 
flood. Truly a miracle has been at work in what, for some, was a total loss. Yet, even with 
those, help comes from the generosity of other United Methodists who were touched by the 
hurt and loss of others. 

What a year of disaster, yet what a year of miracles! For the first time in many years, we 
had two districts pay 100% of their primary apportionments. It was also a year in which our 
Conference paid its entire General Church Appointments. We are grateful to Bishop Marion 
Edwards and the Extended Cabinet for the leadership which they have given this NC 
Conference. We are indeed a connectional church and nothing of this magnitude could have 
been accomplished without all of our conference leadership, pastors, and lay persons, who 
have joined in making our 12 districts sound the cry: "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the 
dead, and Christ shall give you light." The following district reports give witness to this fact.

Burlington District Report 

Although the Burlington District is the smallest geographic district in the NC Conference, 
its numbers of persons called United Methodists continues to increase. This District, 
comprised of 55 charges and 65 churches spread over Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Orange, 
and Person Counties, received 344 persons on confession of faith in Jesus in 1999. 
Seventeen churches fulfilled the Rainbow Covenant, and congregations district-wide attained 
a 98.2% level of giving to the 1999 Apportionments. Three churches/charges moved forward 
from student status to full-time: Bethel-Locust Hill Charge (formerly Cobb Circuit), Leasburg 
UMC, and Center UMC. 

In response to the overwhelming need for foster care, the Burlington District sponsors 
a partnership between the Methodist Home for Children and Elon Homes for Children through 
a joint staffing effort. This new ministry is recognized by the Department of Social Services 
in Caswell, Alamance, Guilford, and Orange counties as a faith-based resource for foster care 
and potential permanent homes for children. The UM churches of the Burlington District are 
being trained to offer "wrap around" support to the foster children, foster parents and natural 
parents. As throughout the Conference, hundreds of persons in the District shared their faith 
in Jesus and their works of love through reconstruction and repair of homes destroyed by 
Hurricane Floyd in eastern NC. 

During 1999-2000, several building projects were completed - a new sanctuary at Christ 
UMC-Chapel Hill, a remodeled sanctuary at University UMC, a remodeled parsonage at 
Fairview UMC, a new fellowship hall at Palmer's Grove UMC, a new parsonage for Warren's 
Grove UMC, a new parsonage at Bellemont UMC, and a new parsonage and office area for 
the district. 

All praise to Him whose name is above all names. 

Rodney G. Hamm, District Superintendent 
Durham District Report 

1999 has been quite a year for all of us! In response to tremendous destruction by 
Hurricane Floyd to our brothers and sisters down east, the Durham District was among the 
first to respond with generosity and presence, with truckload after truckload of supplies, all 
headed east as we received word of the most recent need. Human power followed quickly, 
as needed, and now, in the recovery stage, the District, divided into eight subdistricts, plans 
to send one work team per week in a rotation among these subdistricts for as long is needed. 
In addition many of our churches are regularly sending teams on their own. 

Durham District continues to grow in its missionalheart as well as in its intentional bent 
toward inclusiveness. Currently we have six cross racial appointments and several churches 
are intentionally increasingly multicultural. We pray that both these trends will continue. 

Capital improvements include the new and recently consecrated 22,000 sq. ft Family 
Life Center at Aldersgate UMC in North Durham. This is the first facility of its kind in the 
Durham District. Mt. Bethel Bahama) had added a second story to their education building. 
Union Chapel plans to complete an education wing by Annual Conference; Rougemont 
should have completed a new parsonage by then as well. Creedmoor UMC's large new 
Fellowship Hall has already been enjoyed at several District meetings. 

Spiritual growth is observable in clergy and laity. Churches are thriving and all are 
serving the Lord where planted! Durham District is alive in Christ!

Elizabeth City District 

The Elizabeth City District deeply appreciates the tremendous outpouring of love and 
assistance received during the flood. Because of the response from our Conference and 
Methodists from across the connections, we have been able to help many families as they 
begin to put their homes and lives back together. 

The Elizabeth City District has now purchased a 7 x 16 foot trailer which is being 
equipped for emergency response. It will be available for use wherever a disaster may occur. 
A 30 passenger bus was given to the District by Pine Valley United Methodist Church in 

Property has been purchased for the new church at Nags Head. A Disciple Bible Study

Fayetteviile District Report 

In 1999 many of the churches of the Fayetteviile District received helpful training 
sessions for their officers, and various committees that support the administrative work of the 
local church. The churches have been fruitful in their evangelistic outreach as many persons 
were received on Profession of Faith and 30 of the 49 charges showed a net gain in 
membership for the year focusing upon the mission of which is to "win souls for Jesus 

Nearly 19,000 lay persons and pastors in the district had a year of fruitful qrowth and 
activity in times of great joy and great sorrow. Although every church could not be cited for 
some particular accomplishment or every pastor indicated for specific achievement, everyone 
in the Fayetteviile District contributed to the overall picture that is presented. Fellowship halls 
are contemplated at Parker's Grove and Black's Chapel; The Rock, a newly formed 
congregation, is about to purchase 19 acres of land in the Spout Springs community to build 
a church; Cornerstone GMC a new congregation is working toward building a church for 
worship, study, and fellowship activities. The district contributed funds and volunteer workers 
to build the first Habitat House in Hoke County. 

Of all the works in the district this past year, however, none can excel the love and 
concern expressed in many tangible ways following the disaster caused by Hurricane Floyd. 
In the Conference, six districts were severely damaged by Hurricane Floyd. The churches of 
the district rendered aid immediately by sending in work teams and making monetary 
contributions to the Conference as well as water, food, clothes for individual churches and 
families. One church of the district, Salem, gave one church a donation of approximately 
$20,000. Many churches cooperated in providing work teams from the district to the flooded 
areas of the six districts to help remove debris and helped others begin the process of 
renovating living facilities for the flood victims. 

The Fayetteviile District is privileged to state that many persons of the district shared 
their Christian witness in a variety of ways to help provide relief to those in need in the disaster 
areas, as well as maintaining the spiritual and financial connectionalism of the Gnited 
Methodist Church in working together to build up the Kingdom of God through mission and

Goldsboro District Report 

The Spirit of the Living Lord continues to sustain and guide the churches of the 
Goldsboro District. There is indeed evidence that the district is earnestly seeking to develop 
"inward holiness and outward compassion" as we proclaim the Presence of Jesus Christ. The 
churches of our district have founci multiple ways to practice the "means of mercy" within our 
local communities. Evidence of God's blessings are most clearly seen in the outward and 
visible expression of our churches faithfulness. The following celebrations within the 
Goldsboro District is but a brief reminder of our faithfulness and obedience to God's Love: 
Beston GMC(John Roberts) - Dedicated fellowship hall 

Bethel GMC (Wayne Co.) (Sherman Guthrie) - Plans approved for new sanctuary

Greenville District Report 

The big story of the 70 churches and 46 charges of the Greenville District in 1999 was 
Hurricane Floyd and the consequent flooding of churches, homes and businesses. This was 
the hardest hit District in our Conference. Nine churches and four parsonages were either 
totally flooded or damaged by the water. The response of people both within and from outside 
our District has been marvelous. Work teams, donations, phone calls, truckloads of needed 
items have come from GMs in at least 14 states plus the significant response from GMCOR, 
the Red Cross, Duke Endowment, the Annual Conference and Bishop's office. We have had 
more offers of Workteam help than we could accommodate. Two Disaster Response Centers 
have been set up in our District (Tarboro and Kinston) with the major Response Office in 
Greenville and a major Distribution Center in Vanceboro. While we could not see God's hand 
in the flooding, we have seen His hand in the response of His people to the flooding. More 
than 900 Christmas Memory Boxes were donated to our District and, under the primary 
guidance of GM Women, were all delivered within eight days to families who had been 

For the first time in decades, the Greenville District Churches paid 100% of their 
apportioned funds for worldwide ministries in 1999. A big step forward in Evangelism also 
occurred when 45 of our churches (10 more than usual) received at least one person on 
Profession of Faith. We praise God for those two developments. 

Facilities have been expanding to accommodate broadened ministries. Farmville GMC 
completed a new Chapel and Bell Tower; a new Fellowship Hall was completed at Mount 
Hermon, with others planned for Jamesville, Hookerton, Bethany (on the Bath Charge). A 
major new Resource (Family Life) Center was completed at Covenant, and work on Family 
Life Centers has begun at Jarvis Memorial and St. James in Greenville. Work is beginning on 
a new Parsonage in Hyde County, and the Grimesland Church has been significantly 
upgraded to house the ongoing Hispanic ministry there, attracting 20 - 40 Hispanic persons 
on Sunday evenings. 

In missions, several churches have sent Mission Work teams to other countries or areas, 
in addition to the Flood Work teams here. GM Women continue strong mission outreach and 
studies. Within the year Greenville has welcomed the opening of a new branch of the N.C. 
Food Bank and will greet the establishment of a Methodist Home for Children Center here this 
summer with great enthusiasm. 

Strong emphasis has been placed on deepening spiritual growth. Some churches 
already offer "Christian Believer", many offer Disciple Bible Study, and many in the District 
are involved with the Emmaus Walk and Chrysalis (for youth). Numerous other Bible Studies, 
concerts, Spiritual Renewal Services have been offered. 

It is a growing and exciting time in the Greenville District. Development of Lay leadership 
has a top priority, with Workshops, the annual Lay Rally (which draws more than 600 people),, 
the Lay Academy, recruitment and training of Lay Speakers, and other events contributing 
to that effort.

New Bern District Report 

1 want to express my sincere appreciation to the Laity and Clergy of the New Bern 
District for their faithful commitment and hard work to the mission and ministry of Jesus 
Christ. Over the course of one year, several important ministries took place in the District that 
is worthy to reflect on. 

First, we celebrate 2 new church starts in the District: On January 1 , 2000 a pastor was 
appointed to begin a new church in the Surf City area. Beginning July T' a pastor will be 
appointed to the Jacksonville area to begin a new church. Both the laity and clergy of the 
District have supported these new church starts, and we give glory to God for the opportunity 
to reach the uncnurched and to provide new faith centers for worship, nurture, mission, and 
ministry in eastern North Carolina. Over the course of 4 years, 3 new churches have been 
started in the District. 

Second, from January 9'^ - February 6^^, the District was engaged in a month long 
Mission Focus Event. Dr. James White, former, pastor and District Superintendent of the 
Northern New Jersey Annual Conference, as well as, former Executive Secretary for Europe, 
World Division/GMCOR was the key mission interpreter for this event. In addition, other local 
and conference mission interpreters participated in the Mission Focus Event. As a result , the 
District Council on Ministries committed to a three year partnership with a new church in 
Mytischi, Moscow. Over the next three years the District will raise $ 1 8,000 to support New Life

Gnited Methodist Church in Mytishci, Moscow. 

Third, we want to express our gratitude to the people called Gnited Methodist for the 
support you have given to the New Bern District in the response and recovery phase of 
Hurricane Floyd. Your acts of kindness, support, and generosity have been overwhelming. 
Although Hurricane Floyd uprooted thousands of families in the District, your gifts, presence 
and acts of service touched of families whose lives were interrupted by the flood. 

Fourth, 1 don't think this report would be complete without mentioning the number of 
professions of faith in the District; over 420 professions of faith in the District. It was my hope 
that each church would have at least one profession of faith. I am sorry to say, this did not 
happen; however, I am pleased to report that one church had 105 professions of faith, 
another 43, and one rural local church had 15. Numbers aren't the only evidence of an 
effective church. Professions of faith must never take a back seat in our celebration and 
proclamation of the kingdom of God.

Raleigh District Report 

The Raleigh District continues to be healthy as it seeks to do ministry in the name of 
Jesus Christ. Churches continue to grow in membership as well as establish innovative

The church was named Windbome Gnited Methodist Church. They had their first service of 
worship on Sunday, January 9, 2000. 

Kermit L. Braswell, District Superintendent 
Rockingham District Report 

The Rockingham District has felt a renewed interest in Bible Study with most of the 
churches reporting at Charge Conference active Bible studies in progress. Of particular note 
is the fact that many of these are Disciple studies. Two small churches are each reporting 
Disciple groups that are averaging over fifteen in attendance. We have started two Disciple 
studies in prisons located within the district. First GMC, Rockingham has provided ten 
volunteers, workbooks and Bibles for all of the students at one of the prisons. For the first 
time in many years, we have worshiped, celebrated and shared as a district at one Lay Rally. 
Because of our attendance size, no church in the district was large enough to host the event 
and two lay rallies had been held, one in each end of the district. With the completion of 
Richmond County Community College's auditorium, we were able to meet 'together' and 
experience our oneness once again. There are several Hand in Hand ministries and one 
'Shalom' ministry working within our district boundaries. We, along with other districts, 
worked hard to be in ministry to our brothers and sisters who were in the flood area, and 
because of that also have experienced many helping ministries among ourselves. Our Native 
American Cooperative ministry has taken as its mission Fairview GMC and is working with that 
congregation to upgrade its facility. Plans are now being finalized for a new Asbury home in 
Pembroke. Also of note is Beauty Spot and First GMC Pembroke finished paying off financial 
notes on their facilities and held 'note burning' and dedication services. West Roberson GMC 
continues its strong commitment to the Communities In School program at a local school.

Rocky Mount District Report 

Temperance Hall completed a Fellowship Hall and kitchen with additional classrooms 
and bathrooms, all tied into their historic sanctuary with a beautiful, spacious, light filled 
narthex. This was possible due to a to a generous building grant from The Duke Endowment 
and the stewardship and building skills of the church members. Significant improvements to 
facilities are underway at Wilson.First, and numerous other churches are planning extensive 
additions and renovations. 

Clark Street Ministries is moving forward toward chartering as a United Methodist 
congregation in 2000 and is about to double its child care enrollment. It is also engaged in 
a bold community ministry in cooperation with Nash General Hospital, The Duke Endowment, 
and the Rocky Mount District to improve the health of the community, the spiritual welfare, 
the education level and the appearance of this depressed area of the City of Rocky Mount. 
Many churches, especially Rocky Mount; Englwood, and Pinetops, provided outstanding 
disaster assistance following the unprecedented flooding brought on by Hurricane Floyd. 
Clergy and Laity gave generously of their physical labor and material resources to assist flood

Sanford District Report 

The Sanford District continues enthusiastic support of our primary mission and 
ministries requests and for the fourth straight year, have accepted and paid over 100% of 
these Askings. We are seeing increased growth, and many of our churches are making strides 
to increase Sunday School and church attendance. Also, new programs of ministry are being 
established increasing the activity of our laity in outreach mission endeavors. 

Our Hispanic Ministry continues to show signs of spiritual and numerical growth. There 
is a vision to establish apartments in the church in Siler City where persons who need housing 
on a temporary basis will be helped. 

The following churches are starting or have completed new building projects: 

Smyrna Church is building a "Family Life Center." This will be a 7000 sq. ft. 
building to accommodate a stage, basketball and volleyball, a commercial kitchen, 
bathrooms, and a fellowship hall with a seating of approximately 376 . The cost is 
projected to be $640,000. 

Carthage Church has restored their facilities. This historic building was eaten up 
by termites and was in desperate need of repair. This project will be completed 
soon and the building of a new Fellowship Hall and Educational Building is now 
being discussed. The total cost of the sanctuary restoration will be $317,400. 
Southern Pines Church trained nine Stephen ministers as this new ministry in their 
church. They have begun construction of a new parsonage to be completed by 
June 2000, at a cost of $270,000. They have launched a capital campaign to raise 
$2.7 million to build a new sanctuary. They gave $46,000 to mission projects in 
1999, in addition to payment in full of apportionments. 

Jonesboro Church will complete a multipurpose building this fall for recreation, 
fellowship, and classroom space. They will add a new staff person this June to lead 
their Mission 2000 program. 

Love Joy and Macedonia churches have provided numerous work teams to Siler 
City and Kenansville. They have taken very seriously the Bishop's call to "Children 
and Poverty," and have adopted an elementary school. 

Page Memorial Church, Aberdeen, took a building formerly known as the Railroad 
Building, and remodeled it to house their Administrative Offices. The Seymour 
Trust Fund in 1999 distributed $30,845 to missions and $31,545 for scholarships. 
Page Memorial Church, Biscoe, began a ministry called "Youth Alive," meeting 
each week with over twenty-five children. They have an active liturgical dance 
group and also a clown ministry. A new carpet was placed in the sanctuary and the 
fellowship hall was completely remodeled. Plans are now being made to put a new 
organ in the sanctuary. 

Sapling Ridge Church has remodeled the chancel in the sanctuary. They worked 
witn Duke Endowment on architectural drawings and have now completed this 

groject. A dedication service is planned for the first Sunday in June, 2000. 
loubs Chapel has completed a new kitchen in 1999. It is furnished with 
commercial equipment. It was dedicated September, 1999. Everything has been 
paid for. 
These are only a few of the many exciting projects and ministries taking place in this 
District. We are alive and well in the Sanford District and give thanks to God for all His 
spiritual blessings.!

Jack L. Hunter, District Superintendent 
Wilmington District Report 

The Wilmington District continues to be an exciting and vibrant reflection of the Holy 
Spirit working among His people. Thankful that the brunt of Hurricane Floyd's destruction 
did not befall the area, the district immediately responded to the areas that were involved. 
Many teams were quickly formed and rushed to the aid of those so terribly effected. With 
recent years' storms still fresh on the minds of so many in the district, they were eager to 
reach out and help. At once a disaster response office was up and running to meet the 
immediate needs of victims. It was without regret and a prayer of appreciation that a 
permanent disaster recovery office was not necessary within the district. 

Many churches in the District can be found at various stages of building projects. From 
those just at the study phase to those who have already moved into new facilities, the District 
has been blessed with the need for expansion. While Westview, Jordan's Chapel and the 
three churches of the Bladen Charge are just initiating the first step. Harbor, Lake 
Waccamaw, Wesleyan Chapel and Wesley Memorial find their projects as various stages of 
completion. Numerous other churches are involved in one form or another of construction. 

One final highlight of the year in the Wilmington District was the pilot project of an 
advertising campaign through a special grant. "Making Sure People Without a Prayer Have 
One" was the message thousands of people heard over a six-week period through special 
television ads on major stations. While it is impossible to measure the impact this campaign 
had on the vast majority, the general consensus among our Methodist family was one of pride 
and willingness to invite others to join their church. 

John Paschal, District Superintendent 


On behalf of the staff and Trustees of The Duke Endowment, let me express our respect 
and gratitude for the life and ministry of the United Methodist Churches in the Morth Carolina 
Conference. In 1924, when James B. Duke created The Endowment, rural Methodist 
churches were named as beneficiaries — that is, eligible to receive grants. Since that time, the 
Endowment has made grants to assist rural churches in building projects, in supporting 
programs and outreach ministries of these churches, in supporting retired ministers, and in 
aiding agencies and programs in their work with rural churches. In particular, this has meant 
support of Duke Divinity School in its Field Education, Continuing Education, and more 
recently, in its Parish Nursing Programs, which I will elaborate upon in a few minutes. 

Our biggest change over the past year has come with the loss of Tommy Langford from 
the Board and as Chair of our Division. We greatly miss his wisdom, humor, leadership skills, 
and his great sensitivity to and love for the Methodist Church. Our new Chair is Dr. John 
Hope Franklin, professor emeritus in American History of Duke University, and recipient of 
the President's Medal of Honor for his work on African American History and his leadership 
in civil rights across the nation. We look forward to our work under his guidance. 

1 would like now to report to you the specific expenditures The Endowment made to the 
North Carolina Conference in 1999, and alert you to some of the program possibilities for 

^Building Grants. The Duke Endowment wants to assist churches that need our help, 
show promise for ministry, and are actively involved in outreach to their communities. In 
1999, we assisted 32 rural churches in building projects, making expenditures of $87 1,000. 
We have projected 38 grants and $984,000 in expenditures. The thriving economy, growth 
of the United Methodist Church, and the impending Census have all contributed to this huge 
increase in requests and grants. We encourage all rural churches considering renovation or 
new construction to contact us as early as possible in the process, so that we might assist you 
as much as possible and so we can accurately project our future needs. 

*Outreach Ministry Programs. We have been excited and pleased with the interest 
in so many of our churches to the needs of their communities. Many churches have requested 
funds for ministries in response to the Bishops' Initiative on Children and Poverty. We know 
that the care children receive early in their lives greatly affects their potential as older children 
and adults. We recognize the shortage of quality child care programs in rural communities, 
and continue to strongly encourage churches to use their many resources to meet this need. 
We have begun to emphasize the notion of quality child care: we realize the vast differences 
among programs. We have made funds available to any church wishing to increase the 
training and education of its teachers. Funds are also available to upgrade programs currently 
in existence. 

Other exciting ministries have also been funded through the local churches. We have 
aided ministries to senior citizens and programs combining ministry with health services. One 
literacy program has also received support. 

Ongoing district or conference support was given to those ministries serving larger 
geographical regions. Project Jubilee assists congregations in their assistance to persons 

Reports 268 

affected by Welfare Reform legislation. The Society of St. Andrew, or SOSA, coordinates 
gleaning activities in the area, and delivers that food to agencies for free distribution. We have 
also supported the Hispanic Ministries Task Force, which provides training for clergy and laity 
interested in developing ministries with their Hispanic neighbors. 

We invite churches, districts, and conference agencies to direct inquiries to our office 
for grants to assist in outreach ministries of any sort. 

* Collaborative Programs. The Rural Church Division occasionally works with other 
Divisions of The Duke Endowment in order to serve our beneficiaries more fully. The Hand-in- 
Hand Coalition was funded at $166,250. It will work with schools and congregations across 
the state in providing for the unmet needs of children. 

*Duke Divinity Scliool. The Endowment continues to make grants in support of 
Summer and Winter student interns and Student Pastors across the state. These students 
offer a wonderful service to the churches, and they gain valuable experience and training in 
the rural church. Continuing education is also funded. Rural clergy and lay people are 
subsidized in their acquisition of new skills and knowledge as they strive to serve their 
churches more faithfully. A new program of Duke Divinity School is Parish Mursing. Many of 
you can testify to the serious health care needs of our congregations; ministry historically has 
included health care. Several of you have already employed parish nurses to help in this area. 
Mow the Divinity School and School of Mursing are collaborating in their formal training of 
parish nurses. Pastors with a nursing background and nurses desiring theological training will 
take specialized courses in both schools, enabling them to be certified in pastoral care. 

Two other major areas of interest for our Division are emerging. Later this summer we 
will be circulating a Request for Proposals dealing with elder ministries. We recognize the 
many needs and gifts associated witn our growing population of senior citizens. There are 
special advocacy needs, recreation opportunities, health care concerns, residency issues, and 
personal care requirements. Caregivers also have needs best addressed by the local churches. 
We encourage churches, districts, and the conference to consider ways to more effectively 
minister to and with our older parishioners, and to contact our office about your ideas. 

We are also concerned with the growing poverty of our rural communities. This is a 
complex problem, and will require a multi-faceted solution. The church is in a prime position 
to help with economic issues, whether that be with job training, individual development 
accounts, child care support, or general advocacy. Again, we invite the church to present your 
ideas and visions to us. 

The staff of The Duke Endovmient is committed to helping the clergy and laity of our 
rural churches provide leadership for service and mission. The Rural Church Office is located 
in Durham at P.O. Box 51307, Durham, NC, 27717-1307. Joe Mann or Val Rosenquist can 
be contacted at (919) 489-3359, or by email at or vrosenquist( . We 
hope to hear from you to see how we might be of assistance as you engage in ministry in 
your rural community.

Bishop Edwards and Members of the 2000 Session of the North Carolina Annual 
Conference: 1 bring you greetings from the Committee on Episcopacy of the North 
Carolina Conference. 

This Committee acts in many ways like the Pastor-Parish Relations Committee in the 
local church. We serve as a liason with the bishop and provide counsel and assistance in 
strengthening his or her work in the Annual Conference. 

The office of bishop has been a part of our Connection since the organization of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church at the Christmas Conference of 1784. It was clear in Mr. 
Wesley's mind that he had the authority to ordain preachers, and likewise he believed there 
was a clear need for a superintendency, but it is no secret that he parted company with his 
American brethren on the matter of bishops. When he heard that Asbury and Coke were 
not only elected as superintendents but set apart as bishops, he wrote that famous letter 
to Francis Asbury, September 20, 1788. He said (and 1 quote Mr. Wesley here): "But in one 
point, my dear brother, both the doctor [meaning Coke] and you differ from me. ...How 
can you, how dare you, suffer yourself to be called a bishop? I shudder... at the very 
thought. Men may call me a knave, or a fool... and 1 am content, but they shall never... call 
me a bishop!" 

The wisdom of Asbury and Coke and the Christmas Conference in setting for the 
American plan of organization has been proven again and again. In 1788, there were 
several things about America that bothered John Wesley, not the least of which was the 
American Revolution! 

We have been blessed in this Conference by the leadership of wonderful, strong and 
effective episcopal leadership. A bishop does far more than "fix the appointments," a 



phrase from the Discipline I have always thought curious. A bishop provides vision and 
counsel, guides diverging parties to comnnon consensus, and offers spiritual direction for 
our labors together. 

The Comnnittee on Episcopacy has met twice since our last Annual Conference. We 
have sought to give assistance and help to Bishop Edwards in any way possible. We have 
engaged in a process of extensive evaluation of his work. And we believe that God had a 
hand in sending him for this particular time in our history. 

I would like to share with you the results of our deliberation as we enter a new 
quadrennium. The Committee on Episcopacy voted unanimously to ask the Jurisdictional 
Committee to assign him back with us for another four years. We believe there is much 
work to be completed, and Marion Edwards is the person we need to lead us. 

1 would be remiss if I did not give thanks for the gracious and wonderful helpmate we 
have for our bishop. Linda Edwards has been there for him and for us as well. May God 
continue to bless their home and strengthen them both for this ministry. 

There is a wonderful story told about the conversion of Dr. H. C. Morrison, the 
founder of Asbury College and Asbury Theological Seminary. There was a day early in his 
life when farm worker Morrison was plowing in a field. Happening to look down the road, 
he saw an old Methodist circuit rider riding by on a horse. The young plowman had seeri 
the preacher before, and he knew him to be a holy man. As Morrison watched the saint 
go by he could feel the power of the preacher's godly presence way out there in the field. 
Such a sense of conviction for sin came over Morrison that, fearful for his soul, he dropped 
on his knees; and there, alone between the corn rows, he gave his life to God. 

That is the kind of person we want to be our bishop. And we believe that in Marion 
Edwards we have a holy man with a single eye for the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus 
Christ. Bishop, 1 present the report for the Committee on Episcopacy and ask that you 
relinquish the chair to another elder as I present this report for adoption and also another 
motion from the Committee. 

First, however, I would ask that your wife, Linda, join you. 1 would count it a distinct 
privilege if 1 might offer a prayer for you and Linda. 

Dear God, we offer our gratitude to you for Marion and Linda Edwards. Pour out 
your mercy and your blessings upon them and their home. Thank you for giving 
us Bishop Edwards as our spiritual leader in this Conference. Endow him with 
gifts and graces that will move us into new vistas and avenues of service with 
confidence. Truly make him a holy man each day of his life, that we could all 
move with him toward that perfection of love and purpose that befits the 
Kingdom of our Lord and Christ. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

The Task Force on Older Adult Ministry seeks to highlight the need for the Older 
Adult Ministries in the local church in such a way as to be inclusive for the older adult. The 
emphasis is on developing ways of empowering older adults in ministry as opposed to a 
hand-down program of caring for the helpless older person! 

Special events during 1999 included: 

1 A joint sponsorship with First Church, Gary, when Dr: Richard Gentzler of 
the Board of Discipleship led a workshop for leaders in Older Adult
